These tournaments don’t work that way, (thank god!) Basically, you pay the entry fee and hunt wherever you want in the state. ALL laws apply (5 squirrels per hunter, etc) Then you have to be at the weigh in on time, not a second later. Needless to say, the closer the weigh in is to your “spot” the better. More time in the woods, less time driving. 
Fun stuff!

Those rules make it an easy decision then: shoot the .20 and punch a smaller hole in the squirrel-heavier weigh in for the tournament.  

What pellets?  Are they still available to purchase-I have always loved the idea of a hot .20 caliber, with very heavy pellets.  If I can find pellets, I may want to do one of those in the future (different gun though).
