My neighbor hunts squirrels with a bow. I do not want to make him mad.

I first learned how to bowhunt by hunting small game.
I hunted small game for 5 yearsor morebefore I killed my first deer with a bow.
I usually use an old 40lb Browning Wasp Recurve if I decide to go for small game only.

seems like I remember reading that Ted Nugent won the national archery squirrel hunting championship back in 1974. Never tried it myself/
