I can only think of a couple of things that would suck worse than having to dress a limit of squirrels with one hand, on a 90° day. 

Ya know, that gas station across from the church has big, fat, delicious roast beef/pepper jack sandwiches for $2.79 😋 

Hey I'm a glutten for punishment. Finding it hard to aim my Rifle.

No fun in that though.  Although I refuse to clean a squirrel...😂

Dude squirrels in January have gigantic sacks and their skin might as well be leather. Love eating em but for what price..

My wife said Squirrels had to go around the House.

Grey was in the Back Yard. I got my .22 and shot it. Cleaned it.

Wasn't easy wit one good Arm but got it done.

               Way to go buddy!  

        Do what you can with what you have.  I don't care if it is hot. I clean mine in hot weather in air conditioned shop hanging by a cord over a bucket while sitting in a chair :) . You can make it easy or hard. Funny you got you one today. I thawed a dozen big old ones. Put them in a dutch oven with herbs and spices with some beef broth. They are now simmering on the stove breaking down. Barbocoa Squirrel baby. Not sure if it will become taco meat, maybe enchilada meat? I can tell you one thing it is going to be good and it smells wonderful in the house.  Mrs. BilletHead will come home from work and get a smell and instantly a smile will appear :) 

   This here is a pile of meat, thumbnail_IMG_20210915_145931986.jpgthumbnail_IMG_20210915_145926816.jpgthumbnail_IMG_20210915_151927196_HDR.jpg

Look at Marty cooking today !   👍 

 

An acquaintance of mine stopped by on his way home from dove hunting the other day, and had one short of a limit......that had been fermenting in his bag-vest for going on 4 hours in the sweltering heat.     

Oh Yum!  🤢 🤮

 

I said, why didn't you breast them and throw them in a cooler?    He goes "You can't, it's illegal".       What?????  Idiot!  🙄

Its called "aging".  Tenderizes the stiffness out of them.  If they sit long enough, you get wiggly rice with them....

          I have a cheap small tall cooler I use as a seat with some frozen cold packs in it. Fixed up one for Pat also. As soon as a dove is shot it goes into the cooler. Same thing during the warm teal season. Been putting those birds in it too.

    @oneshot or @oneshot 1,

             Not trying to derail your post. When you want help retrieving or shooting those tasty rodents off your porch give me a call :). I'll even help ypu clean them if you do a head shot. No gut shot for me.

     Lets finish up this cooking deal. Falling off the bone tender I picked the meat. Netted three pounds two ounces. Mixed a bit of fat into it and it is ready to use for a dish or two or three. Strained the broth for later use too. More brazing or as a soup base. I am thinking some wild rice, celery carrots and a hand full of the squirrel for soup at the moment. thumbnail_IMG_20210915_185632709.jpgthumbnail_IMG_20210915_185636761.jpgthumbnail_IMG_20210915_191504202.jpg
