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?

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

But I didn't know there was a grand slam of squirrels. That's hilarious.

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.
