who all likes to eat them? What's your favorite method of bagging squirrels? What's your favorite method to cook them? When does your squirrel season open? and close? What's your limit? When was the first time you went squirrel hunting? How many years have you been squirrel hunting? The first time I ate squirrel I was 5 years old. A cousin and his new bride came down and spent the night with us. The next morning he got up early and went squirrel hunting behind our house and killed two squirrels. Mom fixed up a big pot of squirrel and dumplins and from that point on I've been hooked on hunting and eating squirrels. 40 years later I still get excited when squirrel season is nearing. I'll hunt them just about anyway you can, from still hunting, stand hunting to hunting with dogs. I like to shoot them with a 22 rifle, using 22 shorts, aiming for the head. But I do use a shotgun once in a while for those fast little grey squirrels. I like to fry the young ones and make dumplins with the old ones. Last year I introduced my daughters (ages 11, 7, and 4) to squirrel hunting and they are excited to start squirrel hunting this year. Our season starts May 15th and last through the end of January. Limit is 10 daily and 20 in possession at home.
