Do people that hunt squirrel actually eat them for themselves or feed them to their bloodhounds?!
We used to eat them when I was a kid. We had a tradition in my family of squirrel hunting every Thanksgiving. We would also skin them and make hats and stuff with their fur and tails.
My dad squirrel hunted. He would clean (skin) the meat, fry it and yes we'd eat it.
I'm from new jersey and we never bought meat, hunted everything , we have big squirrels here, honestly they taste great.
Squirrels are perfectly edible.
