    I go squirrel hunting every year since I was 12. I have changed to bow hunting them to make it more challenging

    Nothing beats deep fried squirrel, milk gravy, fried eggs, and biscuits. This used to be a deer camp special.

    I've had the munks and reds get into my barns and chew up all sorts of things, make nests, even chew through plastic gas tanks on trimmers and chainsaws. I try to have an air rifle and pellets handy whenever working in or near the house/barns

    Greys are good eating but you need a few to get a meal. Clean and quarter, par boil, then fry up with some seasoning and breading

    I like to throw a bit of worchestershire and balsalmic vinegar and maybe a bit of hot sauce into the water in the pressure cooker and then put the squirrels onto the rack. Cooks that good flavor right in and makes them super tender.

    It was breezy this morning and the squirrels weren't moving around. We hunted for about an hour and a half and all we saw was a porcupine and two scrawny Amish. Tomorrow is another day and he has decided that he likes gym class a lot better when he's learning at home than when he's in school lol.

    They had been running around in my yard before the wind started coming up, but I had told him he had to do 2 hours of school work before we could go. Mistake on my part hunting wise, but he needs to know school work comes first. He did some extra this afternoon so we will get out earlier tomorrow.

    Indirect heat 300 degrees or so for about 1 hour depending on size and quantity of squirrels, use hickory wood to smoke.

    Place squirrel in a shallow foil pan with sweet onions, worcestershire sauce and butter; liquid should cover about half of squirrel. Salt/Pepper/Garlic Powder to taste.

    Flip squirrel every 20 minutes or so and baste exposed side with worcestershire sauce and butter liquid. Corn Salsa and pair with a nice Bourbon.
