This has potential, but I felt it was a little bland. It needed more seasoning, possibly some fresh garlic and more salt and pepper.

This is the first time i tried squirrel w/cabbage,it was pretty taisty,this is a good recipie*

Y'all should try this! The hard part is skinning it, but once that's done, its easy as apple pie!

Excellent! Tastes like chicken.

EXCELLENT! It takes a veeeeeerrrrrrry long time to cook, but is worth it!

We just love squirrle in our family! It has become a Thanksgiving tradition. My husband usually catches them fresh out of the yard. Great way to save money . Slow cooking in the crock pot ove...
