arthruy,Im NO where near your state of Washington; so I can't really give a definitive answer to your predicament... However, in surfing around a bit on the net and checking out the GREAT state of Washington's DNR website, it looks as if ALL squirrels are protected, with exception to the EASTERN GRAY. The EASTERN gray should be CONFIRMED BEFORE PULLING any triggers..... It is mentioned in their pamphlet (available online) that any squirrels can be shot if committing destructive acts on personal property; however, a PERMIT must be obtained before doing this... YIKES!! As far as what others are shooting with their airguns in your state; it looks as if DNR calls out House Sparrows; European Starlings, Rock Doves (Pigeons) and Magpies...As usual, it is best to check with ones state DNR agency if there are any questions about what can and what cannot be dispatched at certain times of the year; especially with an airgun...Hope this helps,Dave T.
Arthury,Yes, without a doubt, you definitely have an abundance of game around you; however, you just need to get verification of what you can/cannot do with an airgun.... The only three on the list that could be taken year-round and without a license in the second link were the House Sparrow, European Starling and the Rock dove.... The Magpie could be taken only in an act of depredation.... the Crow is protected and has a legit season....If you want more than the standard three to shoot; you will need to wait on your reply from the DNR people.....Hang in there and good shooting,Dave T.
