    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.

    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.

    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.
