    2016/2017 Squirrel Competition

    Good number of site members expressed interest in doing another squirrel competition. It kind of fizzled out last year. See what happens this year.

    Same thing... No money involved, bragging rights only. Don't have to specifically go out hunting squirrels. Take 'em as they come.

    Air rifle/.22/shotgun: 1 point per squirrel
    Crossbow/compound: 2 points per squirrel
    Trad bow: 3 points per squirrel

    We can keep a running tally going throughout the season and anyone can join in at any time. Competition open until end of the squirrel season in February 2017. Season is open September 1st to 30th and then again from October 15th to December 31st. I'm sure it's safe to assume 2017 will be January 1st to Feb 28, as is normal. Remember the daily bag limit is 8 and 40 for the entire season.

    No points awarded for posts that's don't include a picture of the squirrel(s) laying next to the hunting implement used. No points for road kills. Bonus points for anyone who cooks up their squirrel and posts the recipe and pictures here.

    Chime in here if you want your name in the list.

    I'm gonna try to crockpot a bunch this year and peel the meat off for squirrel dumplings. I also heard on a podcast where you can quarter them and put in a tin pan with a stick or two of butter and lemon pepper or your favorite seasoning on top covered in foil in the oven on low temp for several hours. My papaw likes to par boil then in a vinegar and water mix to make them tender then he puts them in seasoned flower and fries them.

    I'll enter this year.

    Cook them in a crock pot till tender, flake off the meat, and use the meat in a "Buffalo Chicken Dip" recipe.
