Would you buy farmed squirrel meat?

Seems you really can buy just about anything online!

Having spent the last 30 years in the retail/wholesale seafood business, and having part of our business being the servicing of restaurants, I've seen a lot of things sold that you'd just never expect to see on a plate. And I'll admit too that I've eaten a lot of squirrels, actually like them.

But this is going just a little to far................or is it?

It seems like a good price about what you would spend on shells/season.

Why dehydrated though?

Why not?

We eat farmed everthing else, its just meat. However you have to appreciate the inventive spirit of its marketer. I would try it. I love pulled squirrel BBQ, i just don't seam to have the time to pot squirrels.

I dont hunt squirrels b/c i love their flavor. Infact i'm on the fence if not leaning towards 'dont like the flavor'. But it gets me in the woods, i have lots of fun with the .22, check out new hunting areas, hike around ect ect. its the whole experience and the fact that i wont kill something that i wont eat(in general). So thats why i eat them. Now if they just tasted like beef or venison....

shortydog you take all the fun out of it.

I cook mine in a crock pot then make tamales out of them, very tasty. Made 100 dozen this past January for a party and they were all eaten. Really surprised some people at how good squirrel meat actually is.

Aw, man. I was hoping it was real.

Squirrel jerky rehydrated with whiskey and various flavorful liquids, stew it with some onions and peppers...

Squirrel burritos!

Okay, you got me.

My best friend has a Filipina wife who absolutely loves squirrel. I was all ready to forward him this link...

Oh well, guess their air rifle and/or .22 will continue to get a work out. Sure would have made a great Christmas gift, though...

I'd be concerned that instead of squirrel, I'd get rat! :barf:

I'm laughing because someone found out that it was a joke by attempting to order squirrel.

Perhaps we should use this as a pilot study, and raise squirrels!

I dont even shoot at the grays. Leave them for someone who likes them, and yes I know it is a joke.
