Any of you homos going this Saturday?
Taking my son Saturday and Sunday. I think I'll make a hunt Monday morning by myself though weather looks great early next week.
I'm going......I'm hunting Yosemite during the shutdown.
I always heard that you wanted to wait until after the first freeze to hunt/eat squirrel. Something about some sort of parasite?
Also, how do you prepare squirrel, @lsutiga ?
It's rabbits that you need to wait for a freeze before eating. There is a parasite that some carry until temps get cold enough, but not all have them. I know you asked tiga but I'm gonna tell you what we do. I like to cut them up and batter them. (Egg wash then seasoned flour) Then I pan fry them in a black iron pot. Take them out, then make a blonde roux in the same pot. Add onions peppers etc then water to basically have a thick gravy. Put the fried squirrel back in and simmer till tender. Serve over rice with cat head biscuits for sopping up gravy.
That way sounds good too.
"Brown gravy". Brown the piss out of them, saute' onions, add water cook down until tender.
A lot of people cook them in agumbo too.
Got my limit (8). 5 fox squirrels and 3 cat/gray squirrels. Was done by 8:30. Took a pic but it's on my pantech and don't know how to post if from there. I usually just send those via text.
What's a pantech?
I see why you said pantech. That sounded way cooler.
