Red Squirrell Recipes?

Passadumkeg | Mar 11, 2008 10:32 AM

I know this sounds odd, but we are plagued with very destructive, red squirrels. Locally they are know as red tree rats. They destroy our garage, destroy our "squirrel-prof bird feeders, have eaten through wires in the attic and regularly trash our lakeside cabin. I have now Have-a-heart trapped 23 of them and transported them to parks and garden sections of box stores. Either nature deplores a vacuum or they just keep coming home to mama. I hunted and ate a lot of big meaty gray squirrels as a kid and loved the rich dark meat. Has anyone ever eaten scrawny little red squirrels? The hind legs look the size of a meaty chicken drumstick. Any ideas? Really!
