Tuhh keep up Frank! :good::no:

 

FM, enjoy the squirrel. Its good! make sure you cook it with enough oil/water or it will be a little chewy.. the bacon sounds like a good idea, as the mealting fat will hydrate the squirrel meat nicley.

Its now in the freezer waiting for the next BBQ. any good BBQ tips for them?

nice pictures m8, i will try it some time. :friends:

 

Interesting stuff. They aren't very common yet up here at around 55 degrees north, though I saw one in a park a few weeks ago. We still have some reds around here and there is good reason to stop the greys getting a hold, though I suspect it is a lost cause because they're wily little bu**ers.

 

I used to do black powder shooting years ago and in American books about it they had .32 caliber muzzle loading squirrel rifles that were copies of old Pensylvania rifles from the eighteenth and nineteenth century. I always fancied shooting them with a muzzle loaded pill of lead, wrapped up in a cloth patch. Great fun muzzle loaders - a real ritual, a bit like smoking a pipe in comparison to lighting an Embassy or something. I did hunt with a muzzle loader for a while years ago, but the .45 cal balls used to mess up the rabbits big time if I ever hit them. The excitement of loading the damned thing when you could see your quarry used to turn my guts right over, then take aim, BANG - cloud of smoke and usually it had run away. The thing was a .45 cal smooth bore so I had it as a shot gun. I understand it used to be ok to fire one ball out of them then. Don't know about now, but it was damned inaccurate. Eventually I used it as a shotgun with half an ounce of lead, but it wasn't a lot of use even then. A bit like a .410, only slightly bigger and a lot more time taken to reload it.

Nice shot matey! Spot on.

I've been looking to try the elusive tree rat for a while now. I'm a chef by trade and might just do it next time, i've only really been put off by the effort but next time he's gonna get fryed up with a little rosemary and served with creamy mustard mash and some roasted veg. Great pics!

RESPECT!
