    squirrels with warbles

    found this today cause i was unsure about eating squirrels with warbles early in the season, im guessing with would go the same for deer also.

    I may catch heat for it.. But in the rare event that I shoot one with a warble i toss em... Nothing in nature goes to waste.

    I'm with Joe, I wouldn't even mess with it. Then again, I don't squirrel hunt very much either. Getting the itch to shoot something though.

    The whole squirrel. They may be safe to eat but then again so are deer assholes.. But you won't catch me frying up a batch of them. I would love for a biologist to tell me this directly, my first words will be "Then you eat it"... Bet they don't

    right ill prolly do the same, unless it has 4 or 5 warble then thats alot of meat gone, never worried about warble before but with all this heat this year was really unsure if they would still have them or not, my buddy said not every single one is gonna have them

    I do the same. It's been a few years since I've killed one that had them. But I'll be damned if I'm eating a tree rat loaded with those little bastards!

    Live to hunt. Hunt to live. It's just how I live...

    im with joe and jesse i toss the whole thing. Those damn things make my skin crawl. Not much can weird me out but warbles do.

    I leave them for the hawks. I used to have a neighbor that would eat them and I would always give any with a warble to him. He has moved so I now leave them for the other predators. I usually kill a couple a year with a warble or two.
