Hmmmmm... maybe I can use this to get my wife interested in hunting. I have already gotten her hooked on plinking with the .22; I just need to find a way to get her to take the next step...

Why I eat squirrel, really

By Georgia Pellegrini

Published January 22, 2012 | FoxNews.com

Some consider squirrel to be the best meat in the woods. On my journey as a chef, I have come to think that it may be the best meat period. The phrase, “You are what you eat,” befits a squirrel as it does a Spanish acorn-fed pig that are prized so highly by those with means.

Hunting game animals will never again be able to sustain our population. At best it is now a supplement for a minority of us. Not sure why she is special enough to deserve a spot on fox news for simply doing what people have always done. There is a lot of sentiment towards this type of thing I suppose. People that haven't hunted in fifty years get a warm fuzzy feeling as they read it or see it because it recalls memories of squirrel hunting with their long-passed grandfather or father.
I would love to try her cooking but squirrel will never replace beef, chicken, or pork in my diet and I'm guessing it won't in yours either.

She messes up the babble about guns, hunting and macho males and all that baloney. Good for her!

My question is,
Dose she know the difference between cutting the wind pipe and cutting the jugular's and carotid artery's that "Bleed" the life out of the animal, or was she just trying to sound less,,,,,,barbaric???:rolleyes:
However I get that fuzzy feeling thinking there is hope. ;)
My daughters will shoot but the sleeves never come up.:(

BigMikey: Took my wife hunting for the first time today. My 'secret' was to not force her to wear camo and let her be as comfortable as she wanted. No biggee since we were in a blind. She ended up spotting a large doe and I shot it. She now wants to go next season and do it all on her own!!
