    Headshot is most sincere.

    I always go for the headshot, it ruins less meat.

    I know I'm going to make this room look like a broken record but, in the head if your going to eat it and any where you could get a bullet if your going for pest control.

    Head is good for a rifle. I prefer a shotgun, shot doesn't travel as far, and if your shooting into tops of trees no telling how far or what your bullet could hit. And small shot doesn't waste any meat, just makes your wife make funny faces when you spit out shot at the supper table.

    the head if you hit in the bidy you can damage some of the meat and there isn't much to waste.

    I agree with others here that wounding a squirrel means it usually gets away to die. That hide is tough and they do *not* get blown to pieces like a ball of fluff.

    A squirrel knows every single hole in every single tree in the woods and how to get there fast.

    aiming for the head is a good idea even when using a shotgun, since you will do less damage to the good meat that way. If it seams too hard to aim for the head, the squirrel is *too far away* ... this is a good test for judging the range.

    Sometimes I get city folks who can't imagine why you would use a shotgun. They imagine a squirrel is a little ball of fluff that will be blown to pieces. So I remind them you hunt quail with a shotgun and they start to get it.

    A lot of folks use a .22 and never consider anything else, and that's cool. But I find I have to skip too many shots and I am expected to come up with several big pots of brunswick stew every year.
