    If your a real squirrel hunter you know that you always seem to kill some real old tough ones here and there that are too much trouble to skin and eat. So one method that works for me and my grandad is to put them in a pressure cooker, you know one of those pots that keeps steam in and gets real hot, and make sure you know how to use it before attempting this, then take the squirrels and put em in there for about 20 minutes or so letting the weight on the top rattle about 3 times a minute. Then carefully get the squirrels out put em in your favorite fry batter and pop em on the skillet. Using this method you get SUPER TENDER great tasting squirrel meat that is only second to the youngest squirrels in the woods. Good luck hunting.

    another good way to do it is... deep fry them on low for about 20 mins... 10 on each side.. then bake them for about 20 mins...covering the baking dish with a lid of some sort, this should get them done.. then make squirrel gravy...MMMMMMM MMMM GOOD! but thanks for the post...

    No only thing I would do is stuff them in your mouth after you have fried them and made some home made brown gray to cover your grits and eat until you cant eat no more.
