Squirrel stew tonight. I'm currently working on the 18 pack

Looks good! I haven’t yet mastered the ways of cooking squirrels. Last couple I killed I wrapped in bacon and tried to grill indirectly low/slow. Still tougher than Chinese algebra

I've been getting into it more and more this year. I think I've been out three times now, but man those suckers sure disappear when you're trying to get into position for a shot!

I'm a big fan of squirrel hunting. My favorite recipe is squirrel, rice and gravy. I like to pre-soak the squirrels in a water, salt and vinegar brine for 24 hours and then pressure cook them in the instant pot with beef broth. Comes out very tender. Separate the meat, make gravy out of the stock and serve over wild rice. It's quite amazing!
On my deathbed, I will receive total consciousness. So I have that going for me, which is nice!
