So I've been shooting squirrels midday on my off days before I get into my treestand. This time of year it only takes about 30 minutes to get a limit. When I was cleaning them yesterday, one was loaded with what looked like maggots, all over it's heart, lungs, intestines...basically everywhere inside when I opened it up. They also appeared to be in the meat. I did not take a picture, as i was pretty grossed out. I have never seen this in 30 years of cleaning squirrels. Any idea what it was? The white "things" did not appear to be moving or alive.
