A Huntin’ We Will Go

I’ve been wanting to take my kids squirrel hunting for the longest time. However, my wife is not, to say the least, a fan of hunting. She would only relent to my taking the kids if she went along.

She was true to her word and last Sunday we all went for a walk in the woods by our house.  My wife was wasn’t feeling well so we only stayed for about an hour and a half. We still had a wonderful time and I even managed to bag a squirrel.

Cleaning the furry little devil was a learning experience since I hadn’t done it since my childhood. Still I got through it and I had him for dinner that night.

Unfortunately, the meat was extraordinarily ‘gamey’, almost to the point of being unedible.

A couple of more experienced hunters in the shop recommended that I soak squirrel in apple vinegar overnight to get rid of the gaminess. I plan to try it out later on since my little taste of squirrel hunting over the weekend has whetted my appetite for more.
