Squirrel can be substituted in most crow recipes too.

As for the skinning/annoying hair sticking everywhere:
#1 for keeping the annoying little hairs from getting everywhere...WET IT DOWN FIRST! THE WHOLE THING. Soak it completely.
2) put it on its stomach. Make an incision underneath the tail right at the rump. Cut through the tail bone, but not through the skin on the other side. Fillet along the backbone from underneath the tail for about a half inch or so.
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.

If you cut the tail just right, cut under the skin a bit and leave enough skin you can stand on the tail, pull up on the legs and the skin comes right off in one quick pull. 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 :(
