I spent nearly ten years in West Virginia and could never comprehend the popularity of squirrel. The darned things don't look as though they have enough meat on them for a White Castle burger. Another poplular Appalachian delicacy is groundhog. I haven't built up the nerve to try it either.
Venison is, on the other hand, one of the finest flesh foods available in terms of nutritional value. Natural and unspoiled by man's tamperings, it's lean, mean and (when well prepared) extremely delicious.
