You talk about jumping.
....The transformer is up there too.........

WARNING
sometimes the squirrel will short out the live wire to ground and knock out your power.
have the power company come out and put a squirrel barrier on their pole.

Fond memories of my aunt Mary's squirrel and dumplings. Mom did not want to fix them, so took them to my aunt. Have not had them since she passed on. Don't think it would be the same.  :-[

Old doesn't bother me, its the ugly that's a real bummer.

I grew up hunting and eating squirrel, I don't know how many different ways mom could fix them, but they were all good eating.

My wife used to make a mean dish with them too, fried up and then smothered in gravy, hmm has my mouth watering.
They never bothered me in the woods, heck I actually enjoyed squirrel hunting more than I ever did deer hunting. There just isn't a whole lot of things more enjoyable than squirrel hunting with a good dog after the leaves fell of.  I have not lived where there was any eating squirrel for many years, and sure miss it.

Darn hawks around here have decimated all the small game, turkey hatchlings and a few small pups out of peoples yards. Three hunt in a gang here. They circle evenly spaced out. And those three don't count the one hugh one that is sometimes around.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

You may have to come out of the dark ages and invest in one of the elecric pressure cookers such as an instant pot. Several different brands. All you have to do is plug them in, program the time and once it cooks at that time it will turn itself over to warm.  Don't have to watch it. I have a small instant pot but may get another big one of a different brand. You can can I think it's 9 pint jars in it at a time. Would be ideal for me to can up some sloppy joes, meatloaf, chille etc and have to open when not in the mood to cook.

Don't need to can much. My sister usually cans around 250-300 cans of any and everything each year. She is so proud when I take some. Local grocery store had whole pork loins on sell last week real cheap. She canned two whole one along with boneless chicken breasts that were also on sale. It's her hobby.

    The new word invented by Jeff, "Squirrelganoff", got my curious nature peaked.  Sure 'nuf, I googled it, and it did indeed give a link back to the Forestry Forum.  Next thing you know, it will probably be in the dictionary.
     Growing up in the south on the rivers and bayous, I did a lot of squirrel hunting with my pawpaw and uncles.  I was the only girl grandkid, too many boys to take with them, so I always managed to go.  Pawpaw said that he lived to be so old because he ate a lot of wild things.  Squirrels were the favorite, along with deer, wild hog, ducks, catfish, and an occasional nutria rat.  My favorite squirrel dish is squirrel and gravy, with mashed potatoes and coleslaw.  
     Over the years, I stopped killing things, so when my son wanted to shoot squirrels or birds in the yard, I told him that if he killed it, he'd have to eat it.  Needless to say, he wouldn't kill even a fly any more.
     The last squirrel I had was an orphaned naked baby that fell from a nest during a hurricane.  I raised her to be about six months old, and released her up at Andy and Nancy's home at Lake Sam Rayburn.  Hope she made it!!! 
     If someone brings me dressed out squirrel, I will surely cook and eat it, though!!!
