    cook them just like chicken. or my personal favorite squirrel stew(meat, taters, creamy mushroom soup, carrots, and whatever else you got around). nothing beats squirrel and dumplings either:smile2:

    congrats on the kill

    squirrel and dumplings or fried squirrel are like a brother in law you like- they are hard to beat!
    one thing though, you can't shoot squirrels in tx with an air rifle. be careful, man!

    you can kill starlings, sparrows and pigeons (feral rock doves, as the state calls em) anytime, and with an air rifle. grackles, or blackbirds of any kind, have to be concentrated in a number that makes them a nuisance to shade trees, crops, or a health risk. to me, any of the above mentioned birds' very presence is enough of a nuisance to get shot by me! one more thing is if you are in city limits, most cities or towns have ordinances against shooting airguns in town. a way you might get around that is to ask the local police if you can shoot in your own backyard with a proper backstop. here in amarillo, they have an ordinance like that, and the police never bothered me killing starlings in my backyard, as long as i was in the backyard.
    one more thing i recommend you do is go to any sporting goods store that sells hunting/fishing stuff, and pick you up an outdoor annual. they're free, and they contain all the regulations for hunting and fishing you need, so you won't find something is illegal when a game warden or sherriff is knocking on your door! hope this helps!
