The only time squirrel hunting makes sense is if there is no other large food source (ie survival), or you own an avocado ranch. I've never heard of anyone eating squirrel, and squirrel slippers probably makes more sense. The other 98% is just plain dumb hunters thinking. Shooting them is for the fun of shooting them. There's no purpose beyond that. It's gun righters justifying every single aspect of hunting out of fear their guns will be taken from them.\n\n\nTalk to old people- you'll find some who ate squirrel.\n\nDo you eat chicken wings, drumsticks or thighs? They're not very big, but people eat millions of pounds of each, annually.\n\nWho gives a shyte about squirrels? This thread is about people being idiots and assholes with guns? Stop derailing it.\n\nGun rights people don't give a rat's ass about squirrels.
