When living down South, I ate them year around 35 years ago.

We eat them pre frost in GA. If there is a bot fly larvae it gets scraped off and anything else is killed in the pressure cooker. Makes for an awesome pot pie

as a lifetime squirrel hunter, yes, as long as they meet my inspection for health and i cook them thoroughly i would have no problem. same with rabbit.

i like making hot wings with them, just mix your favorite hot sauce (mine is Cholula) and some butter and baste in oven or fry in a pan with a bit of olive oil, hot sauce and butter to soak in the flavor.

Slit across the back and rip the skin off end to end. Batter fry like chicken. Kept many of us alive during the Depression. They are abundant here. I'm going to start squirrel hunting here in Oklahoma when the season opens.
