I case skin mine, but still manage to get some hair on the meat. I usually try to clean off as much as I can, but my wife still complains. Do you guys have a good way to remove stray hairs from the meat?

By way of a recipe, if a have a lonely squirrel hanging around in my freezer, I will wrap it in foil with salsa and corn, and then bake it. It makes a good lunch.

When I lived there in the States, I used to hunt and eat squirrels all of the time. Delicious, so many recipes. Between them and bunnies, it'd be a toss up as to whcih I like better!

My brother and I skin them the same way our Dad did. We make a cut under the tail near the rectum and push the skin back some along the back. We then grasp the back legs by the feet in one hand, place the tail under one foot and pull upward on the legs. Doing so removes the skin from the back and front legs to the head. The remaining skin on the back half of the squirrel can be grabbed on the belly side and pulled up over the rear of the squirrel. We then take our pocket knife and cut the legs and head off. Usually no hair, if a squirrel is shot up this method can result in the squirrel being torn apart, but you can still salvage the good parts.
