For many hunters, small game is the first type of game they hunt and harvest.  Seasons are long, bag limits are generous, and game is plentiful.  A hunter needs little more than a rifle or shotgun and a handful of shells to be fully equipped. 

Kory and his daughter recently spent some quality time together in the woods, where he taught her the value of harvesting and cooking your own meal, and the appreciation for the animal's sacrifice. 

Squirrel can be a tricky meat to cook. Most people make the mistake of not cooking it low and slow enough to soften the meat. If you're not careful, you're going to end up with a rubbery chewy mess. Take the time recommended by Kory and his team here, and you'll have a tasty, delicious meal.
