My sons and I have a goal: kill a squirrel in every state. We recently marked Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota off the list. Here's some pictures. I hope you enjoy.













Any of you folks squirrel hunt? Post some pics!

Assuming y'all have Texas crossed off, how many states total so far? Just the ones you mentioned, or are this just recent additions?

Thanks fellas for the support. Only this last year was decision made to attempt this, so some states I didn't get any proof. My plan is to have picture proof for each state. If you want to just take my word, though: Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. I have plans to hunt my way to Georgia later this year.

If you have an out of state suggestion, from somewhere I haven't got, lay them on me. It's a good time.

There are no squirrels in Hawaii. Other than that.. I think it's a grand idea!


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Alaska has them, but it sounds like Hawaii could be problematic. Perhaps I could smuggle one past TSA in my drawers...

Great Idea, would be interesting to see what you spent on license fees in each state, whether non resident or 3-5 day special or if they even require a license to shoot a squirrel.

Blackcoal they vary. Iowa, doesn't offer any temporary or small game. Just full price, NR license. Over a hundred bucks. Many states give you discounts if you are a first time buyer. Minnesota was about 90, Wisconsin about 50, Illinois about 30.

Which, compare that to a round of golf, and you get much more bang for the buck. So far, all have required a license.
