Tim s, that was a 15 year old article in the NYT, whose primary purpose was likely just to make fun of what is now probably a rare practice even in the South: eating squirrel brains in preference to the meat. The people in question were brain eaters exclusively from the sounds of things.

Most here are advocating head shooting squirrels with rimfires, which pretty much blows all of that possibly prion loaded brain tissue right out of the tree rats ears, making it unavailable for consumption,even were someone so inclined.

Me, I like a suppressed 10/22 or an unsuppressed Anschutz for headshots, and do most of my squirrel hunting either still hunting or shooting them from a ground or tree stand where populations are dense.
