Are western grey squirrels even legal to shoot in California
yep they have a season and everything. The book reads all tree squirrels in the genus Sciurus and Tamiasciurus (western gray squirrel scientific name is Sciurus griceus ) can be hunted bla bla bla.
I take all mine to a buddy of mines. His wife makes squirrel and dumplin's, think like chicken and dumplin's.
My favorite is the young ones pan fried,the old ones put in a crock pot with just alittle water, season and cooked till they fall apart then deboned and made into a stew.
I have been hunting them since I was 8 and 40ty years later still enjoy it as much now as then.
I still think its one of the best ways to get kids interested in hunting.
slow cook in crockpot or give away. meat gets tough as they age.
One word. . . dumplings
Looks very very tastey.
You can't go wrong with squirrel no matter how you cook it,but the best is fried,with biscuts and gravy.
The way I like em the best it fried. I cut all the meat off and roll the chunks in flour, salt, pepper, a little cayenne, and some garlic powder. Then just pan fry in some oil. Then you can make gravy and biscuits or whatever.
When I was young, maybe 13 or 14, me and my buddies would go out after school and shoot a whole mess of em, clean em and divy up the meat.
If you don't have enough for a meal but have some other assorted game in the freezer you can make a meat pie too. That's what I am doing with my leftover rabbit and pheasant.
You mean there was a time when you actually killed stuff? What happened?
