    I have never shot any red ones before, but I got 5 of them now. Not much meat on them though.

    I wish I had gotten a couple of grays like this. He hunted in the evening the same spot I got the three reds in the morning, but I didn't see any grays.

    Have you tried eating the red ones yet?

    The only time I tried some they tasted terrible.

    The gray's are fine. My son shot his first 2 Squirrels on Saturday. I had the leftover stew for lunch yesterday.

    Both people I asked about them told me they wouldn't eat the red ones, so no.

    A friend that lives north of my town has some HUGE foxes in his woods, but I don't get up there to hunt that much. I have another that has lots of grays, but the one I hunted the other day is really the only one I can just go and hunt anytime.
