    i use a scoped 22 for squirrel. you can use a 12guage with 4 shot to takeum from the tree tops. i dont limit out all the time because i like head shots only (more fun than gun)but hey they arent my favorite animal to clean either. lol after 2/3 hours they are pretty hard to skin you know. i used to have one of those "mr. squirrel" calls that would bring them running down the trees for a shot at certain times through the season.

    if you are new to puffballs you need to know what ones are safe!!!!! there are two kinds that i know of. the one you want will be white as snow with an inside texture like white bread. the bad one is more like a porous hard sponge on the inside(do not eat!!!!). look on the net for different ways to prepare your find. we just slice(1/2in.) peel the skin ,flower n fry in the skillet in butter and oil.
