WOOOOOHOOOOO. Let the smack down begin!
I think the same way, too. If they were a little easier to clean, they might be endangered where I hunt.I love squirrels...especially young ones that are fried...add a little gravy and man what a meal..
I have to tell you this story... A few years back during the Veterans Day parade, In Ponca city there was a full Bird Col. as the grand master of the parade. I was on the bleachers right behind him when one of the local bankers wives(pretty old) came up to him and thanked him for being there. As he was in his dress greens, she said " Were you a cook in the service?" He replied, no, and before he could say anything else, she said" you must have been a cook... you have chickens on your lapel.I hear ya bro, I was down at your neck of the woods today at Ft Sill. Had 3 full bird Col's with me or I'd of looked you up.
That was one of my duty's in life after I got my first .410 at 11 yrs old was to get my grandmother at least 2 a year. She ate brains and all, even when the Dr's told her that she couldn't eat meat anymore. She lived to 91. what the hell to the Dr's know? :'(Yea, I've made that same pledge myself..most everytime I kill a few...but sooner or later I'll shoot a few and then it will all come back to me about just how hard it is to clean them...the young ones are a lot easier but it takes a bunch of them for someone like me..Guess when it comes to young squirrel I'm just a pig...
Go for it!Dennis, I have got to steal that story about the lapel chickens!!!!
