Seventeen days until me new squirrel season opens, and it is on a Saturday. Every one have their favorite 22lr sighted in and ready to hit the woods on the first day? When I lived in New Yorkistan i NEVER missed the first day of squirrel season or deer season since I was twelve until I moved out of New Yorkistan at the age of 42. Lately I have been coming back there to hunt deer for three weeks. I do shoot a few squirrels while back there. Here in Washington state you only see them in town, I have taken a few, but there is not many here for the taking. My favorite way to cook them is; Quarter three or four of them up. Boil them to get the me at off of Russia the bones and make soup out of them. A can of tomato juice A bag of frozen mixed he goes Potatoes cubed up small The squirrel meat Salt & pepper A couple whole bay leaves When simmered and everything is done add small egg noodles and let it set until the noodles are cooked. Add water when needed while cooking it.
