I dont know about Virginia, but in Georgia You would have to either use a shotgun or muzzleloader. No rimfire rifle is legal for deer hunting, and no centerfire rifle is legal for squirrel hunting. My favorite walking around deer rifle is probably my .30-30. For squirrels, I usually use a 10-22 or Buckmark pistol.
