This is the third in a series that will answer the questions: What can you shoot and when can you shoot it?
Please allow me to make a correction. When I wrote in this series that I shot gray squirrels that were eating Linda’s bird seed, I meant red squirrels. Turns out it’s illegal to shoot gray squirrels, except with a hunting license and during the gray squirrel hunting season. And even then, it’s illegal to bait them.
Special thanks today to Warden John MacDonald who answered my questions about this intriguing issue. In response to this series, the Maine Warden Service also posted information about what you can shoot and when, on its website in the Frequently Asked Questions section, and you can read that here.
Kill them all!
