Squirrel recipe lands Kentucky hunter on national television

Scott County's Bill Gorman has traveled the world. His talents have earned him state-wide acclaim, enough to get the attention of people working for The History Channel show, "Hairy Bikers." The show features two bikers, Texans that drive around the States and find local hunters to share with them their stories, kills, and culinary creations.

"Anybody that hunts will tell you that it's the excitement. You've got to outsmart the animal on his turf," says Gorman.

Gorman may be known for hunting big game, but it's the smallest of creatures that's getting him national attention - squirrel.

"It goes back to the pioneer times. A lot of times this is what they had to eat," says Gorman, "squirrel's actually a good clean animal. Far cleaner than chicken."

It's the dish the bikers asked him to fix for them.

"Kinda like the way Grandma used to fix her chicken."

For a man who's been around the world and hunted some of the most elusive creatures, down home cooking and hometown hunting remain close to his heart.

Bill Gorman makes his debut on "Hairy Bikers" Friday, November 25 at 10:30 p.m.
