Well, got out yesterday for a midday squirrel hunt. Only 6 days left in the Indiana season. If weather permits, I'm gonna try to get out 1-2 more times.



Normally I hunt with a .22. However, this woods was close to a couple's house, and with the possiblity of taking a rabbit, I took my little H&R pardner, 20 ga. The squirrels are soaking in the frig as I post this.

Well, it was nice yesterday, so I took a buddy squirrel hunting. We hit 3 of my better woods, not much moving. I managed to get one, and saw two others. Little varmints got in a hole, before I could get a shot.



Another bubba buddy pic for ya ingwe! grin

Ella, nice pic. Our season closes tomorrow, so I thought I'd give it one more try this AM. Got up and the wind was blowing too hard so....I cleaned the gun, washed the huntin clothes, and called it a season until next August. grin

Somewhere within the last week, or two at the most, someone posted a link to an article about a guy that did the Grand Slam of squirrels (8 species). Anyone know where it went to? Might be in Outdoor Life. I would love to have a link to it again.

BrentD,
I'd also be curious to read that piece. I've shot and eaten "red" squirrels, Southern Fox squirrels and the regular grays this year (plus some cross-bred looking buggers). And I've been trying to relocate a small black squirrel that kept bounding by during deer season.
But I didn't know there was a grand slam of squirrels. That's hilarious.

I'll keep looking for it. I'll post a note in a few other places that it might have come from.

There are 8 species according to the author. I've hunted four of them. Reds, Fox, Greys, and Abert's. Of those 4, the Abert's was the king of squirrels for me.

All of them taste wonderful.

I never figured out what to do w. the old ones but stew 'em or make taco meat. But the young ones, I like to stuff w. rosmary, tyme, garlic, drizzle a little olive oil, and bake 'em (best is wrap 'em in foil and put em on the campfire). Every body likes them done this way. Ale or red wine (bourbon) for accompaniment.








Not normally my kinda mutt, but she was a rescue off the side of the freeway. Think she'll make a squarl dog?

Ella

(I THINK I got this picture thing figured out.)

maddog, is that a pardner with no recoil pad? never could handle mine without some kind of pad. prolly just me...

btw, don't mean to thread jack but how do yall keep the fur out of the meat? it seams that once you get it on you can't get it off. what's the deal?

This might not be USDA approved but I dunk the squirrels in a bucket of water before skinning. That helps keep it off and makes it easier to wash off later. But it isn't a total cure.

With 20 horses, 2 dogs and 2.75 cats, we have hair in abundance, so we may be desensitized.

Here's a pic of my oldest son 36 yrs ago when he was 8 yrs old with his first squirrel. Next is a pic of him last year with a Kodiak Bear he killed, and then a pic of him receiving his second Bronze Star in Afghanistan, he received his first one in Iraq.
