I would think that you would only want to use ranch on them if you cooked 'em up spicy, like Buffalo style.

I'll bet that the eight squirrels eat more than the 50 doves.

Mr Mutant seems to know the habits of these woodland critters. The fucking squirrels never stop eating, at least all they are eating is cracked corn.

Be careful. Once the squirrels have babies with Monsanto mutations, they might just take over. Or die off.

It’s hard to imagine more sustainable local game — squirrels are abundant, far from endangered, and don’t even require refrigeration the way that big game does. The standard rule of thumb is that one squirrel = enough meat for one dinner for one person. The squirrel is road food — the kind of prey that fed cross-country hikers, in the days before MRE and freeze-dried lentils. Squirrel is like the drive-through cheeseburger of the forest — albeit a cheeseburger that needs to be gutted first.

There are people around who remember the days when squirrel was a more commonly served meat on the American table than chicken.

Yeah, it was pretty grisly. Deceased rodents falling from trees. It was a time.
