"And, your statement that 'guns injure animals'...oh, bleeding heart lib. A good hunter KILLS the animal instantly. Dead. Meat on the table." - tele

I shot a squirrel through the eye the other day. <grin!> I always aim for the head or the shoulder. And yes I eat them.

First I cut off the feet and head and then I skin them by making an incision through the skin on the back and then take my fingers on both hands and pulling opposite ways pull the skin off the squirrel. Then I gut them and then rinse them off real good. It's best to leave them set in the fridge for a few days so they have time to go through rigor mortis.

Then I cut them up into pieces and fry them in bacon fat and then salt and pepper them. I don't usually dip them in flour before frying.

Yepper, squirrels are delicious!
