Very cool JohnP. I really envy those of you who have "different" squirrels. I'm lucky enough to kill quite a few every year, but we have red fox squirrels and gray squirrels. Be fun to hunt an Albert's or some of those multi-colored fox squirrels. Nice pics.

How come the northern and western squirrels are so big? down here, our squirrel are 2/3 the size of the one in the picture. Everything out here is so small! Except our bobcats, for some strange reason.

A.W. .. I think you'll find that to be true with most critters. Has to do with the climate, cold and survival. That's why big Texas whitetails weigh 135# - big Iowa whitetails weigh 200 and big Canada whitetails weigh 300. I can't account for your bobcats.. maybe they just eat good? wink

We're just starting to get a huntable population of bobcats back here. Buddy who traps caught a 40#er last year but most I see are 30 and less... mostly less.

There you go, GC.. My feeble old mind couldn't come up with it and I was too lazy to look it up. wink

I normally eat 4 legs, back and ribs.. I do admit occasionally the dog gets the ribS because they Take up a lot of room in the skillet. What's there is tasty - there just ain't much of it. wink

Four legs and the saddle (back). I don't mess with the ribs, there just isn't enough there to fool with for me personally.

Down here in the southeastern corner of Az we don't have very many squirrel's and I don't normally hunt them. However I make two trips per season into northern Az,about a six hour drive for me.

Like GC four legs and the saddle. The rest then goes into the pressure cooker, with some white wine and seasoning. After a while the meat falls off the bones and we then add vegetables, potato, carrots, corn, etc. Makes for a good quick lunch soup. the drippings from the fry pan makes excellent gravey.

Thank you HideHunter

Would someone be nice enough to explain what to look for when determining if a squirrel is safe to eat?

Well. Poleski - not sure I totally understand the question but I'll offer this. If a squirrel isn't visibly sick (emaciated - visible sores or tumors) it's probably safe to eat. I know a lot of people put stock in checking the liver on rabbits. But, in truth as long as you cook your meat past 165 degrees there's very little chance of contracting anything from eating game. (Cook bear meat *done*)

You would be more likely to pick something up while dressing squirrels/rabbits/ etc. Many people use rubber gloves and it's probably a good idea, though, I haven't for the past 50 years and probably never will.

As I've stated before, I guess I'll feel lucky if it's a squirrel kills me. Only thing better would be a 25 year old jealous husband. wink

ballistic - I've never eaten the brains but know some who do. Don't guess I'll start with the connection to Mad Cow in KY. Besides that - I don't plan for the brains to be in very good shape when I'm done. wink
