Nice to see someone else enjoys going after these tree rats. I grew up hunting squirrels and rabbits. Seems everyone overlooks them these days.

Yep...I eat a lot of wild game, and squirrels are my favorite.
Cut in serving pieces, roll in flour, salt and pepper. Put cast iron roaster on stovetop, brown squirrels in oil. Add liquid to roaster (Guiness works great) and put in oven at 275 for about 3 hours....check often to add liquid. Serve with biscuits and squirrel gravy.

Nice.They are delicious. I always smile when someone says eww to wild game, but will eat fast food prepared by God knows who and handled by God knows how many people in some of the dirtiest places you can walk into. These critters eat nuts and seeds. Have you ever been to a chicken farm and watched as one chicken will follow another chicken around and clean up after it? They even eat each other, sometimes alive.

I also grew up hunting squirrels and rabbits. Still love to do it. Great fun and keeps your shooting sharp.
