The little red devils we have here in the bush are small comparatively. Would take a bunch to make a meal. However, I'm sure they would taste good as they have been in and out of the garage all the time we were processing and drying apples for winter critter food. The squirrels still come and go even though I have all the apples out of the garage for some time now.
They are crafty devils when it comes to getting them to leave the garage. I started with live traps intending to move them out. When that failed, I resorted to rat traps. Have only caught one. The others, I'm sure there are multiple living in the garage, can eat the end off the in the shell peanut and leave the empty shell wired to the trap pan. Buggers.
My cousin in Georgia US tells about the grey squirrels he gets as big as a thermos bottle. One per person makes a meal. Sounds good.

We have the gray squirrels here Tim Horton, a couple of years ago, one chewed through the shingles and wall and got into my attic. I was sleeping when I heard something scrambling above my bed in the attic.
They are very crafty...I paid a lot of money to get that squirrel out! I actually had the tree they were getting up onto the roof cut down😏
Just as one chicken won't feed a large family, neither will a couple of squirrels. That's why my grandmother made squirrel and dumplings as well as squirrel and dressing. As my father often said, "it was larrapin' good!"
