I like my squirrels char-burnt, with garlic
That's the way I had them the first few times, and it just kinda strikes me as how a squirrel should taste now. We used to shoot them with wrist-rockets or BB guns while camping, and garlic salt and pepper was usually the only spices we had, to cook fish with.
The meat usually has a piney taste to it, or at least red-squirrels do. They are somewhat "wild" but I like them none the less
Red squirrels really aren't worth shooting for the meat. All de-boned, they have maybe 3 good bites of meat, I could stuff it all in one mouth full. I usually just shoot them cuz...well, that's what I do, and then eating them cuz, well, I killed it.
