Squirrel hunting is what I enjoy most of my free time in the fall when I don't hunt duck or deer. Sitting on the porch with a .22 watching a bird feeder or a hazelnut tree seems to bring in lots of them (fats one as well!)

The best recipe for squirrel is to roll them in flour. Then fry the squirrels. Make a rue from the leftover flour you rolled the squirrels in. Add water to the rue until you achieve the desired consistency. Put everything in a pressure cooker. Add one cup of water. Once the pressure cooker seals cook the squirrels for 45 minutes to one hour. Serve the squirrels on rice, mashed potatoes, grits or whatever floats your boat. The meat will just fall off the bones. The secret to avoiding a gamey taste is to field dress the squirrels ASAP and rinse them out. Once rigor mortis sets in you have one gamey squirrel.

I have got cooking squirrels down to a fine art. I bought a house to fix up and resell. I was low on money soon into the project. I shot ever squirrel I saw until I came into some cash. If my uncle had not lent me the cash to finish that house I would have killed every squirrel in the state of mississippi.

I live in Newport News Virginia now I grew up in Oklahoma. its funny to me when I tell people that I'm taking my boy squirell hunting and they ask what are you going to do with them? And I tell them,, eat them, a lot of them seem grossed out. That just seems funny to me because it has only been one or two generations since we have gotten away from small game. the day off refrigeration & supermarkets have completely made most people so dependent they would not know what to do if the local farm fresh was closed.. I feel it is my job to teach my son how to survive without the grocery store.. you never know he may need that knowledge someday.

I went squirreling yesterday but 22 ammo is so scarce I had to resort to blunt force trauma.

Took the .410 out but only had 1 shell loaded, shot the squirrel but had to finish it of with a stick. Then I ran home and grabbed my ity bidy Rossi .22 youth with CBs and shot another.

I like mine in gumbo. Just gather up a bunch of small game and mix it up.

With this Stevens 22/410 you wouldn't have had to run home
