you know, if you happened to see one cooking outside your window. I think I would. prolly best simmered with some other veggies in a stew, they're muscular, those critters.

Yep. We used to eat them in Spaghetti. Dad would shoot them with a BB gun or a small 22. In parts of PA squirrels far outnumber everything but deer.

I have in my youth. Stew works best. You've gotta clean 'em carefully to get the pellet out (Always used a .22 caliber air rifle.. little suckers never knew I was out there.)

We used to eat them when I was a kid. In those days, squirrel hunting in the south was pretty popular. You fry them like chicken, but the meat is tougher and there's not as much. The flavor was good, though. It was good in "squirrel mulligan" and gravy. I wouldn't go to the trouble now, but back then, it was part of the diet around here, largely because it was free.

No, but I've had rabbit quite a few times in Italy.

There are a couple of IGA supermarkets in Sacramento that sell rabbit.

Yes. And venison, partridge, rabbit, turkey, and many other types of wild game. It's healthier than the meat counter offerings at your local supermarket.

You could likely live off them with as many squirrels as there are in Sactomato, assuming the homeless have not started doing that yet.

My Dad raised white rabbits when I was a kid. They were like ultra-white chicken meat. He didn't raise them but a couple of years because he didn't like killing them and ran out of other people to con into killing them.

Agreed and ditto *(:>*pirate smiley I love wild game.
The prep and the cooking style are always the key to to delicious wild game.

I must say, I'm surprised how many posters here have eaten squirrel.

I think that's awesome! Just surprising!

We used to say "never eat rabbit that was killed in a month without an 'R'." I think it goes for some other animals, to.

My late father grew up before and during the great depression in a farm family of 12 dirt poor in Ky.
Hunted and ate squirrel. On some rare occasions opossums, and racoons if they had too. Believe he said the opossums were petty greasy.
He told me that his family ate every thing but the squeal and the tail of the hogs they killed.

Squirrels are fed to tourists at Chinese restaurants. Ask for the Won Dum Phuc.
