What's the best way to hunt them? Apparently you can tan their hides with acorns, make yourself a little leather pouch.

I ate it at River Cottage HQ; it was OK, but just a meaty sort of taste - wouldn't have it again, I don't think.

I've wanted to eat squirrel for years, but it's all reds round here (hooray), so no chance.

Not yet but would love to try them. The ones local to me spend too much time eating scraps, fat balls etc for me to want to eat them.

How could you be undecided as to whether you have eaten squirrel or not?

Put a "No" in front of it if it makes you happy
