Re: Squirrel season opens here tomorrow!
Squirrels are great to hunt and great to eat. They're ideal for starting very young people to hunt. Tough to skin, however try this. To skin, cut the skin through about midsection, all around the body. Then, work the skin loose until you can get your fingers under the skin, then pull in opposite directions. Skin should come off like pulling gloves off inside out. Cut off head, tail and feet. THEN eviscerate, pull out the entrails. Soak in salt water to remove blood clots, etc. Then make stew. I use either a pressure cooker or a slow cooker. With fresh biscuits, you'll enjoy a fine meal. I started my sons on squirrels and forty years later our grandchildren come here to hunt squirrels and eat Grma's squirrel stew and stickey buns!.
