I've been hunting and eating squirels for 30 yrs and about 5 years ago I learned to remove the glands under the front legs and also the glands behind the knee of the back legs.  Look at the back of the back leg and you'll see a V in the muscles.  Cut alongthe lines.  inside the leg is another big gland.  I also let the bodies soak for 2 to 3 days in salt water in the fridge.
Since I've changed the way I clean them I have'nt had a tough squirrel.
I think they taste better also.

I meant to freeze the 2 last night that the boy and I got on Sunday, but forgot. :-\  I'll clean the fat and stuff off of them tonight and freeze them.  As I'm going it, I'll try to get some pictures of the glands behind the front legs, and the ones on the back legs that klrbaer pointed out. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
