    My family was eating supper tonight and my dad says "guess what I have in the freezer"...my sister keeps guessing until she guesses right.

    Squirrel.

    Im not even joking.

    His friend gave it to him, he intends to eat it and everything. I went downstairs to check in the freezer to see if he was joking and I found it. It has no head or skin. Ugh.

    Hey, ya ever ate possum, that's some good eating.

    Hell, ya aught to try it sometime, I tell ya man, it's good eating. Possum, raccoons, even zebra meat, cooks up pretty good.

    Pigeons. Pigeons are good too. Sometimes, they come with notes attached...it's like...a fortune cookie with wings.

    Squirrels...squirrels are not that good, they...taste like goldfish...meat's real stringy...ya know what I mean?

    My dad's eaten squirrel before, and described it as "gamey." I never asked how he got around to eating though....
     
  9. My dad used to hunt squirrels with a shotgun. I'm not sure what it accomplished, as the squirrel would be blown to bits.
     
  10. I've killed and eaten squirrel. Not enough meat.
     
  11. wow, there's a lot of weirdos out there

    It's the same as hunting birds with a shotgun... 'Birdshot' contains many small pellets... you pick them out prior to cooking...

  15. Take it from a guy that knows - one single squirrel isn't going to feed anybody. Squirrel is best when done up in a stew or browned then put in gravy but it's gonna take about 4 for every person at the table.

    There's lotsa good eatin' from critters that you've got to obtain in bulk to have a good meal - dove, rabbit, channel catfish, mussels, quail, baby octopus, smelt, conch, crawfish.

    And I've had weirder - alligator, turtle, snake, bull testicles, and deer brains.

    Squirrel definitely doesn't taste like chicken (it also doesn't sound like a freight train). As has been said it's pretty gamey in general but I've heard it makes good stew. I've had it grilled and fried. Not something I really enjoy that much but I've had it a few times (we have a house on our ancestral land where there's a lot of wild game and someone is always hunting something it seems). I also tried racoon once. My boss at work was a real, certified redneck and he brought a racoon up to work when we were having a cookout and grilled it up. I just took a bite to see what racoon tastes like. Kinda spongy, not as gamey as I thought it would be. ;)
