Does this include all squirrels, or only the ones harvested for the table?

I ask, because MI has an open season on red squirrels and I've taken 20+ over since June 1. Those flea-infested little tree rat ba$tards are destructive as hell. Last year my daughter begged me to let them live, and being a good father I obliged - only to discover last November that they ate the seats on my treestands - no more mister nice guy. I hunt them with an air rifle (.177 but I just scoped a .22 yesterday), quieter and more challenging than the .22lr...

I suppose we could count your tiny red pine squirrels but you'd have to show legit pictures.

But,,,,,,We prefer to see pics of your future dinner. Not Wanton Waste

Sorry that I've been absent folks. I'll get caught up this weekend.

Any legally harvested squirrel is acceptable.

Pine squirrels are referred to as 'tree rats' for two reasons - they eat everything hence their destructive little ba$turds and they (at least to me and quite a few other folks) - taste like crap (i.e., rat). If you would like me to take the time to skin and process a tree rat, so you can taste it, then I'll gladly save them for you and send you a gallon ziplock bag (I should be able to fit 40 hind quarters in a gallon bag). If you pay for S&H and agree to post a photo of you barfing when you eat them, just send me you address and I'll send you some tree rat...

And Wanton Waste? Please - whenever they see one fall out of a tree, my cats pounce and eat them for a snack...

I'll get caught up with everything when I get to a desktop later today.

Ohio opened this past Saturday .I took the 5y.o. boy out for two hours in the am.

Saw several deer but no squirrel. It's been in the 90s here all well. I'm done until we get some 60 deg days.
