    Wow. I skinned a dozen in one go a couple of years ago . That was enough for me. I find that pheasant has enough flavour whatever!


    Anyhow, to not derail the thread, a couple of pics from work yesterday . Big oak 'steeper' on the current hedge renovation. (One of many). Went down a treat - with the help of a digger to lower it.

    (not hills, out on sunday, hopefully a little snow again).

    Always tried to pluck as soon as possible, the warmer the bird is the easier it is to pluck.

    Usually hang upto 6 days for pheasant - depending on temp. and the state of the bird. Need to look up whats what for ducks.

    Me too, I've been too quick though and when butchering there was still some nerve response, gave me a start the first couple of times, thought the critter had come back to life :eek:

    BRILLIANT! YUM! Personally, I chop legs & wings, then pull off all the skin in 1 go, then cook in foil. Alum on skin for fly-tying store.

    That's the outer area of Athens, about 1/4 of the pics width from the left is the old airport, so if you flew into Athens on way to an island before 2001 then that's were you would have landed.
