    Squirrel bot fly larvae that dwells in the subcutaneous layer of squirrel's skin. I've killed many squirrels (70-80 per season) and have seldom seen this.

    Listen, most people love to eat chicken a million different ways and chickens will literally eat shit so don't worry about that. The meat is still good but 99% of hunters still throw them away. Ducks have lice and crap too.

    I forgot speckled trout. Sometimes large ones have worms too. No problem. Just cut the worms out of the filets

    They seem to happen in waves. Might go 5 years I don't see a single one then have 2 years where 3 of every 5 I see is full of them. On those years I just wait a couple weeks and they are gone. not worried about anyone else gettin em first so I got plenty time.

    It's really not that bad it's just ugly is all. Literally 2 days after they drop out you cant even tell it was ever there.

    My old-tree neighborhood does not have a squirrel infestation, in fact the population has dropped off this year around me. I figured we had a new predator in the neighborhood and I've been keeping an eye out for a big owl or a hawk or a feral cat hanging around. Maybe I should be keeping an eye on my new neighbors . . .
