Eating Squirrels?

I am giving some serious consideration to hittin' the woods and knock off a few squirrels.  The woods are loaded with them, so I could stand to thin out a few.  What this got me thinking about is in the area of preparedness and survival.  Yes, you can eat squirrels and they are very tasty if they are done right.  Simply put, squirrels are a ready, and abundant, source of protien for the freezer should the need arise.  Many people say they won't eat them, or even think about eating them, but if you are hungry, you might reconsider that.  Not to mention it is a fun way to spend an afternoon with the .22.

I plink 'em and eat them all the time! Well, at least in the fall / winter. Unfortunately, the new dog has been scaring them farther into the woods, so it's not so easy a shot now. I used to be able to sit on the porch & pick them off, but now looks like I'll have to do some "real" hunting!

I've always said that many of the same folks who turn up their nose at squirrel will call snails by a French name and think they're great!
