Bake them in the oven and add rice and cream of mushroom. Or bread them and fry them up.

cook them just like chicken :lol: treat them like wild rabbit or pheasant or chicken. Im lazy i just fry them like chicken.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

I've used a cajun rub and cooked 'em on the BBQ, tried doing a tomato sauce/white rice thing once that I screwed up, but I was just curious to hear some other suggestions. Lady my wife works with said her boyfriend makes a "squirrel pie" out of them. :lol: I'm guessing like a chicken pot pie or something? I told the wife to find out more... :lol:

I'd also guess that the "squirrel pie" is much like a pot pie.

I can't squirrel hunt here in LA County; but when I lived in Jersey, I would quarter them, salt and pepper both sides, and fry them in Extra Virgin Olive oil and Garlic. Put some of the Garlic in before you put in the squirrel and let the flavor get into the Oil.Yum yum yum.
