I told them not to mess with me while deer hunting. They paid the consequence.

Got off the stand and went to get ol' trusty Henry.

Put a smile on my face. Reminds me of the old joke of climbing up into a tree and acting like a nut.

My uncle Pat lived in Ranger and I watched him call up squirrels with a pair of pliers, he could make it sound like a squirrel chattering.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

I do mine in the crock pot. Season how you like it and cover it in chicken stock in slow cooker, strain it in a colander and pick out the bones. Helps to quarter them and cut straight up one side of the spine with meat scissors so it doesn’t take as much stock. Otherwise as they begin to cook the rib cages puff back up and they stick out of the stock.

Done this way you can drain them in the colander, pick out the bones, and melt a stick of butter and mix it in with the strained and deboned meat and it makes some great tacos. I do a stick of butter to about 4 tender young squirrels.

You can substitute the squirrel done this way for any kind of meat in pretty much anything. Mostly I do breakfast tacos with squirrel and eggs, or jalapeño poppers I also mix in cream cheese for that one.

Squirrel is my favorite!

This is the meat of 4 tender young squirrels and a dozen scrambled eggs. Squirrel has a lot more meat on it that you think. Everybody fries them and that sometimes dries the meat out, slow cooker is the way to go!

OK, this is awesome advice. Like, historically “squirrel hunting” has meant “go scout for deer with a 22” to me.. ‘ve eaten two or three of em but it seemed hardly worth the work.. but this is enough to make me wanna try again!

Now somebody share how to speed skin a squirrel and we’re in the biz! food

Skin them from the back. Easy peasy. Slit up the spine and work the squirrel out/work the skin off with your fingers. I gut them the moment I pick them up but I still slit up the spine and skin from the backside.

I have seen some tricks on the internet but none of them work for me.

Cut the feet off.
Cut around the tail.
Stand on the tail and pull the hide up over the head.
Cut the head off.

Here's a short video that describes the process… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4c8OyexZ10E
