    i eat grey squirrel but i by far prefer the larger fox squirrels we have.
    the meat on the little grey ones is white and i don't really like it,
    but i eat it. i try to separate the grey ones to make dumplins with.

    It all just depends on how hungry you are, you will eat ANYTHING if you are hungry enough.
    Supposedly there are only two animals on earth that are increasing in population (not counting domestic animals) & that is Humans & Racoons.
    The comon denominator is that both will eat anything.

I have shot them, and mixed them with chicken in casseroles and they have eaten squirrel but I have not told them that they did. A popular food that I cannot stand due its texture is Okra.

    Interesting report on the non-squirrel eating habits of most Minnesotans. In Ohio we have foxes and grays, and I eat them both. By "little red squirrels" I take you to mean pine squirrels. I do not encounter them in Ohio, but, while camping and trout fishing in the higher elevations of West Virginia, I see pine squirrels almost exclusively. I've never eaten a pine squirrel (never even shot one).

    Gotta admit I'm a grocery food store guy.

    That said, I've eaten rattlesnake, alligator, snapping turtle, and venisen, . All were good eating.

    No spiders, bugs or land crabs. Much more, too much to list.

    The woodchuck, groundhog, soil swine or what ever you want to call them are decent eating. They eat nothing but vegetation. It’s best to get young ones. Our Sportsman Club had a Whistle Pig Feed every year. Members would shoot and dress GHs and put in club freezer.
    We had several old guys who knew what they were doing to direct operations. They cooked them up several different ways. Most all were par boiled first, which isn’t necessary with young ones. It was popular with the public, never any left overs.

    Yeah the pine squirrels. We do not have the larger red or fox squirrels as they were called when I was a kid in Iowa. Moved to MN when I was about 13. I tried cooking a couple of the pine squirrels up. They were not bad but really not worth the effort as there was so little meat on them.
    I do not like raw oysters or any thing resembling raw meat.

    I love beef tongue. I wish it was easier to find. I guess the butchers keep those for themselves.
    If you want to spend your eternity in h*ll, just keep butchering preborn babies.
