Moral of the story: you aren't going to eat a 'wrong' squirrel, but you probably want to get the biggest ones possible. [8D]

Well in virginia, the red squirrel, or pine squirrel is tiny like the one pictured above. We have greys which are bigger. Then there are fox squirrels that can be as big as groundhogs.

our reds are nasty ,tough, pine-tree-tastin-rotten little creeps that are just glorified -tree climbin' chipmunks. In NY you can hunt them year round, no season no limit kill em all says the game dept.
the only big limbrats we have are greys and fox squirells, and the greys are tasty( never ate a fox squirrel) . the fox "rats" ive seen( im a taxidermist) look exactly like red treerats but MUCH bigger.

My mistake coyote caller, here in Oklahoma we call fox squirrels reds. Never gave a thought about an actualy species being called reds. We only have fox and greys here. Thanks for the correction.

we have reds and bigger grey ones here in my part of new york. The red ones will chase the greys all over the place. I dont think we have fox squirrels, if we do, i dont know about it I havent eaten either of them, but i plan on hunting them soon.

You guys that aint hunted them yet are missing out on some good times. Not only are they fun to hunt but taste great, just fry them up like chicken or a porkchop, get some biscuits,gravy, potatoes, and eggs and you have an excellent meal.

In WI we have mostly Grey, Reds and Fox. There are some area's where a very dominate black squirrel is found...which I was told is really a grey with some altered genes. The best way to prepare squirrel in my opinion is in soup. It can help "mask" the gamey smell that some animals seem to get via their diet. Personal favorite is making a barley soup and in place of beef add squirrel.... mmmmmmm
