    Squirrel season has started here in Wisconsin, but it has still been pretty warm. Does the temperature need to drop to a certain point before the meat is safe to eat?

            There was a program on Animal Channel how a little girl was poking at a dead squirrel and contracted Bubonic Plaque. Almost died. Bitten by an infected flea. They said the area infected is mostly in the Southwest.

                To answer your question, there are various reasons why to wait for a particular time to hunt squirrel in Wisconsin. I've lived in Wisconsin all of my life. At a young age, I was taught small game hunting from my Father & Grand-Father. Their reasons for waiting until after the 3rd killing frost is due to ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. It is now November 2nd, and here at the South-Central part of WI, we have had more than 3 killing frosts. By now all fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are dead. Which is a good thing because, an individual does not have to worry about having fleas or ticks going up their arm while skinning a squirrel. Plus, mosquitoes will not be biting you while hunting.
