    I was just wondering this because I've been shooting a gazillion of these animals (Benjamin Sheridan, C-9 .20cal) and some have been on the plump and robust side. Seems like a waste to just toss them into the woods. Kitty has also been nailing them.

    Anyone eating Munks? If so, anyone have recipies??

    As youngsters my brother and I spent a lot of time cruising the woods of the family farm with 22 handguns on our hip. A favorite activity was chipmunking. At the time they were unprotected in PA. Dad's rules, other than vermin, if you shot it you ate it. Many many chipmunks were smoked over hickory or apple in a homemade tin-can smoker. They were the finest deer stand pocket snacks ever created. By the way don't let anyone ever convince you how good groundhogs taste. Just ain't true. Crow's ain't too bad and neither are porcupines.

    Chipmunk Stew:

    Sautee in extra virgin olive oil with minced garlic. Add diced onions and peppers and cook until soft. Add a jar of Ragu and an equal amount of water. Bring to a boil with diced red potatos and carrots. Cook on low heat for two hours and serve. HMB

    If you don't have any EVOO, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, you can also use SOVO, Slutty Old Vegtable Oil


    What is extra virgin, always wondered that when the wife is watching cooking shows on TV

    I would like to know how to establish a population so that I can shoot them. Every time one or two show up they soon dissappear. I used to shoot lots of them when I lived in a subdivision about a mile away. Aparently the subdivision drove the natural predators out. Now that I live on ten acres of woods something is keeping them from multiplying.

    I would love to have a growing population in my woods. Now that I can shoot them with a .22 there are none to be shot.

    Well, since I've given Kitty a bit more freedom, I'm suspecting that he's actually been eating a few of them or so... but he's not fessin' up to anything just yet. I figure that I'll catch him in the act and then question him on the best way for preparation. He's actually a decent cook and not a bad shot considering he's just a Cat.

    Hawks love chipmunks, and have adapted very well to urban life.

    I saw one sitting on a water tower day after day, waiting for his meal. Once I saw him go after a cat, but the cat made it bhind some trash cans.

    A munk wouldn't have a chance.

    Moles tend to taste muddy, the bright side is you can use mole a$$es to make rum.

    Chipmunk Buffalo Wings?

    I guess I'll never find out. Chipmunks are protected in Oregon.

    If you look real close at the picture, you can see a Munk about 4 feet in front and a little to the left of Kitty's head.

    yes, but it also looks like the screen door is pulled shut and the glass door might not be opened quite wide enough for kitty's profile! what's up with that?

    I noticed that Kitty did not finish the last meal; might be full of munks.
