Quickly catch squirrel

Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots (including woodchucks), flying squirrels, and prairie dogs amongst other rodents. Squirrels are indigenous to the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa, and were introduced by humans to Australia.

Squirrels are very quick, so catching them by hand is almost impossible; therefore, aborigines usually use trap to catch them:

+ Collect 2 small tree branches, tie parallelly in a tree. The lower branch is tied unstably

+ Below the lower tree branches, use a wire to make a trap to catch the squirrel after falling down from the lower branch.

+ After catching a squirrel, you can reuse the trap again to catch more squirrels.

To process squirrel in the jungle, you can try this way:

+ Find wood around you to set a fire

+ Wash squirrels carefully

+ Put squirrels on fire in some minutes, take them out to deplume

+ Use some small bamboo trunks to skewer squirrels and bake squirrels above charcoal

Just after a short time, you have delicious squirrels.

Hope this help!

    Squirrel hunting is one of my favorites....and squirrels are great to eat when "country fried" with some gravy, mashed potatoes and a vegetable....But, anyone who saw this first would never consider eating a squirrel!.....However, the primitive way to cook, even today, is to simply throw the animal on a fire...or at best skewer it on a stick over a fire.....sometimes hide,  guts and all....Obviously, the way our distant ancestors found animals in wild fire areas and considered them a food "gift' and delicacy....

    I understand your point of view but actually, this is the only way aborigines who live in the forest can do to cook squirrels, they have nothing but charcoal, knife and tree branches.
