    Warbles are ugly but do not affect the meat. It usually stays with the hide and you can hardly see where it was after you skin it.

    I killed well over 100 squirrels a season for an average the last 45 years and have never seen a flea or tick on one.Occasionally a warble on gray squirrels,never on a fox squirrel.Have seen all on rabbits.

    Warbles are unsightly and disturbing to see, but they are only skin deep. The meat is not affected. I've not run into them a lot, but a good handful of times. I would never waste a squirrel over one. Those larvae cannot get you.

    Is this a good nut year? Seems as though the limbs were heavy with accorns over the water I've been fishing.

    I've seen plenty of fleas. Never a tick tho'.

    Killed one a few years ago that looked like a shar pei dog. Extra skin wrinkled up all over him. I've lost the pix but he was weird.

    I went out at 1630 today and got one. Really was a lot of fun I had to really try to get close enough for a shot. It would bark then go silent so I'd let out a blast from the squirrel whistle and it would bark and go quiet. We did this for a while until I finally caught a glimpse of him and let the winchester do its thing. Unfortunately I hit him on the run and didn't lead enough so he was gut shot which was an unpleasant cleaning experience but he still tasted good on the grill.

    How do you cook 'em on the grill so they're tender? I usually parboil 'em til tender b4 I consider any other steps.

    I hate picking shot out of their carcass. Rifle every time for me.

    Since it was only me eating I didn't mind it being tough so I just tossed it on the grill. But this one wasn't near as tough as some I've had in the past. Usually I throw it in the crock pot for a few hours and then finish it on the grill. Throw on some homemade bbq sauce and it's good good good.
