    if you shoot it, you should plan on eating it. I let mine sit in a crock pot for about an hour.

      To buck hunter 17, it is great. I wish we hadn't even started discussing it, because the season is closed and I never have any hang around long enough to make it to the freezer. To those who parboil before frying, what does that do for the meat? We have always breaded and fried them exactly like chicken. I'm open to new things, so I'll give it a whirl. Is it more moist that way? Smaller ones can get dry before they are golden brown. We sometimes soak them in milk or buttermilk for a while.

        Does anybody know anything about soaking them in salt water for 24 hours before cooking them. I heard from an older gentleman that it makes them taste much better because it pulls the blood from the meat or something like that??

          I am only 23 years old and all I can tell you about the squirrely tail is that it is great! I have been eating them ever since I can remeber and I love them! My father is from back in the woods old school days and he has always said
          "Squirrel is the rednecks lobster"

                    I always like grilling them whole and then adding the BBQ sauce when they were about 15 minutes from being done. When the time comes, you grab an entire squirrel and chow down.

                      Bella, why would bring up the subject of bacteria.

                      stu_manji, yes saltwater will do that. Some people also use a little vinegar because it eliminates some gamey taste to them.

                      007, can I borrow your wife?

                        P.S., I've never needed to par boil a gray squirrel, only the big reds.

                              My wife and I look forward to squirrel season every year. It is the most challenging season in my opinion. Of course we eat them, either as a pie, for breakfast with gravy and biscuits or as spaghetti sauce. For any of the ways we generally parboil them first unless of course it is our first meal while camping and then we fry them, and cream of mushroom soup and serve over biscuits. Nothing could be finer.

                                mmmmmmmmmmmm, squirrel. Squirrel pie, squirrel stuffing, squirrel gravy over biscuits, braised whole squirrel, squirrel stew, fried squirrel. I love squirrel.

                                My wife used to think it sounded disgusting until I served it to her & commented on how good the pot pie was, and she has been encrouaged me to shoot as many squirrels as possible ever since.
