Scent glands---I think it is the brownish fatty looking tissue in the arm pit, pull off when you cut the front legs off. If you miss some, it doesn't matter much.

If you still need some more recipes, try here, here, here, or here. If that's still not enough, try a Google search on "squirrel recipes". Gets you a little over 8000 hits. Gotta love the Internet.

Squirrel can be substituted in most crow recipes too.

Yeah they're usually brownish/grayish fattylooking bulbs under the front arms and on the inside of the hind legs too. And yes they doo make a difference becuase if you don't get them they usually tend to make the meat taste like doo! ->at least that's been my experience. This is especially so if you actually cut into the glands themselves. Eeek!

3) Make two cuts, each starting at the opposite sides of the base of that strip you just made under the tail and extending laterally halfway around the squirrel, stopping just in front of the hind legs.
4) Step on his rear legs. Grasp tail...Pull hard toward the head. Instant squirrel sock removal. You get everything all in one inverted squirrel sock with the exception of the stuff on the hind legs.

Are they in the same place on rabbits? I had one that surprisingly tasted like poo. Maybe I overlooked these...

This works 50% of the time, because sometimes you cut it too little and the tail comes right off and then you have a problem :(
