Another thing to be aware of during Squirrel Awareness Month in October is that squirrels are edible.
Of course, before you can cook them properly you have to kill them. It’s not like cooking lobster or eating oysters on the half shell. So to properly prepare Batter Fried Squirrel, Brunswick Stew, or any other hardy pioneer fare, it’s time to go squirrel hunting. Fortunately October is also squirrel hunting season in Harris County. So get your license, and round up your gear and head for the hunting grounds.
