my tho'ts would be bunnies or hares, not jack rabbits.

No fowl unless they are shot w/a rifle. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Mice, moles, shrews, large grass hopers, and big spyders.

Odley enough I remember shooting bumble bees with my pellet gun when I was very young.

When I was 13 I shot a half doven mice in my parents basement, used a 6 foot blow gun w/ darts.

It was the only time other than bear hunting that I set out bait. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

I shot many-a rats on my dads farm with a 22 rim fire or a 12 guage. I too remember shooting grasshoppers w/ pelets, 22's and even a few w/ an SKS lol! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: what would be considered small game

I believe that if it's a little critter (with fur) and I eat it after I kill it it'd be small game.

If its a little critter that will not be eaten after its been kil't then its a varmint.

If I'm hunting squirrels and kill one it goes in the crockpot. If there's a squirrel chewing on the corner of my shed and I kill it I leave it there as a warning to the other shed eating squirrels!!

Re: what would be considered small game

I would have to agree with Dave here. As long as you kill it and eat it it's considered game.

I'm curious though why do you ask? We hunt the same part of South Texas...
