Have some fun Pointer. By the way are you going to fry up those critters?

not sure yet... i have never cleaned a squirrel, plus these aren't grey or fox squirrels, just nasty little ground squirrels. usually i would even shoot them, but they are messing with my veggies and stuff... i might just fry them up and eat them with the iggies they have been getting... that would be dramatic irony1 i kinda feel like bill murray in caddyshack these things are driving me so crazy! would you eat a ground squirrel? not sure if i could trust it!

Good shot! I was thinking they were grey or fox, no I wouldn't eat a ground squirrel, not that you couldn't. I'm sure they taste fine...like moles or shrews.

i think i might pass... there are tons of grey, fox, and ground squirrels around here... just happened that this one was the ground... if i get a grey or a fox, do i just skin it, cut off the meat and fry it in peanut oil? i can do that if that's all it takes...

Yeah, that's about all you have to do. I usually fry mine like chicken, but real high heat to sear it, then lower the heat and let it simmer for about 45 minutes or so.
It's also great in the crockpot with some cream of mushroom, but then again what isn't.
Oh, one other thing I used to do. Boil it until the meat falls off the bone, cut it up into thin strips, and mix with BBQ sauce and brown sugar. Eat it as a sandwich. Good Stuff!

Do you guys shoot these squirrells out of season? I shot a squirrell in my backyard once. I shot it with my crossman 760 air gun. It is 625 f.p.s.
I shot it so i could trian the new family puppy.

in florida you can only shoot a squirrel out os season if it is destroying property... i was told by a fwc officer that gardens are allowed to be included in this... i am trying not to shoot them unless i catch them actually eating, also i want to leave some for the fall tourny...
