Rabbit Season! Duck Season!

West Virginia local lesson #589:

Rabbits are vermin. There is no rabbit season.

You know what is game? Squirrels. There is a squirrel season. And it starts on Saturday. Putting a major crimp in the number of high school students I'd hoped to have precinct walking for me. Apparently after a long off-season, nothing gets in the way of the kids and their first day armed.

(before you hit that comments button, however, and post something poking at this state, let me warn you, i'm already pretty protective of my new peeps. this state is populated by extraordinarily kind people. though, alright, it's okay to make fun of squirrel hunting a lil'bit. frankly, i'm kinda fond of the critters.)
