    Squirrel- chicken of the trees

    Give squirrel a whirl – Eatocracy - CNN.com Blogs

    "they're all just darling until the day when you walk into your kitchen to find that one has gnawed through your window screen to make himself a snack of your tortillas. He's just there, lounging about on your table all bushy-tailed and cavalier until he spots you...and snarls...and then everything is a blur of tortillas and mange and horror."

    I've had squirrel a few times. Not too bad, though nothing special. They suck to clean though, tough to skin. Not as good as rabbit in my opinion.

    I grew up eating squirrel. Love to hunt them, and like to eat them. Not too bad to skin if you don't try the "cut at the middle of the back" method. I can get one ready for the pot in about 3-4 minutes. No brag just fact. My girls that are still at home love it in a stew, so that's usually how I make it now.

    I quit eating them when I found out they were high in cholesteral.

    Do you just kill the local squirrels? Or go after 'free-range' squirrels?

    I went to a wild game feed a couple months ago which included BBQ squirrel - shredded or pulled style. I couldn't have told the difference between it and beef if there hadn't been a sign on it. First time I'd ever eaten squirrel - to my knowledge.
