Young grays can be as tender as can be but let em get a little age and it can be a challenge to chew em.

Tree rats! They eat holes the gas tanks in any of my equipment that is outside. Lawn mower, gas can, log splitter - even the hydraulic hose. Camper shell rack rubber ends, even the rungs on one of my tree ladder stands, it is like raiser edges on the corners.

Never hunted squirrels with a dog but would love to do it sometime. But then I'd probably be looking for a dog to buy and I already have too many hobbies. I bet it's a good time though!

Okay, I'll admit it. The first thing I ever remember hunting was squirrels. I was about 8 or 9 at the time. Got to go hunt with my Dad and 2 uncles. One of them had a Rat Terrier that treed. I even got to carry my own .410 single shot.
My Mom made squirrel stew with some, some made dumplings.
But I haven't eaten squirrel since back in the 60's.

Got to looking at them with "no hide on" and thought, "Nope, that's a Rat"!! 🤣😂🤣

The images here (and elsewhere) reminded me very much of rabbits.
My dad used to rear them for the meat, especially for holidays like Christmas.
They were a bit bigger than a squirrel, though.

By the way, I never skinned a rat ... :oops:

All this squirrel talk got me to take the 22 this morning and try to get a mess for eating. Naturally I saw a total of 1 squirrel 60ish yards away and constantly moving until he was gone. But I had a flock of 23 turkeys come through inside of 25 yards and no bow.
