The large bore air rifles suitable to deer hunting like the one in the video aren't really practical. All that I've ever seen required a dedicated
charging station, usually involving a scuba tank, or an external air pump for the same purpose. I wouldn't bother.
On the other hand, the more typical .177 and .22 caliber pellet guns aren't a bad choice for small game. I'd still rather have a .22LR with
subsonic ammunition, if noise was a concern. You get a good bit more consistency out of .22LR for larger-than-squirrel sized game, and even though
its not a particularly good option, it could even be used for self-defense if necessary, something I'd never even consider with a typical pellet
