We have Rabbits, rats, tree rats or Grey squirrels, foxes, pigeon, rooks, crows, magpie, jays, some gulls, duck, goose, teal, snipe, and loads of other birds we call game.
I usually use a 12 bore over and under shot gun or an old Remington 1100 semi auto for things like rabbits and rats and grey squirrels I us a .22 air riffle not a section 1 that needs a special permit. There are loads to shoot here you just need the permission of the land owner or farmer a bit of insurance and a good day.

WE have squirrels, field rats, pigeon, crows, ducks & geese, snipe; but the real problems are coyotes, coons, rabbits,and bobcats. I generaly use my Mossberg 500for the birds and squirrels, but for coyotes, coons, rabbits, and bobcats i use whatever is closest cuz they dont slow down to give you time to go and pick which gun to use. When we spotlight coons & coyotes we normally use small caliber like .22's or .17's. WE use dogs for the rabbits and coons.
