I hunted (and ate) squirrels back in PA.

I did the same.  Many squirrels fell to my .22!  Those were fun times!

Shot one in my blueberries tonit but ran off before I could finish him off.

  Checked the regs to confirm ok to shoot and it's not in there anymore.  Pigeons, starlings and sparrows are still there but the eastern gray squirrel is gone.  Has it changed or did wdfw forget to add?
Eastern gray, eastern fox, and California ground squirrels are not protected in Washington and may be hunted any time as long as all firearm restrictions are followed and a hunting license is possessed.  http://wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/gray_squirrel/
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

still ok to nail them. http://wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/gray_squirrel/
They just ask us to make sure it isn't a western gray.
Everyone lives off the land. Some of us simply have more fun at it.
THERE'S AN ANIMAL NOW! SHOOT IT!!! Quote from the movie: Almost Heroes

If you shoot them in the head instead of the "blueberries" they don't run off
