Editor's Note: I don't know why I have resisted the thought for so long but I'm sure the reason chicken dinners always get a mention as opposed to any other menu item is because it probably was a big treat. I remember commenting some time ago that what Allen was shooting at wasn't what I'd consider food but now I see I was mistaken. To that end I found a rather helpful site for the uninitiated for squirrel recipes.
