Plucking pheasants - easier that I expected!

We traded two jars of jam for two pheasants with a colleague of David who shoots regularly. That's me with them in the above photo.

Plucking and gutting is not something I have done before, so after checking various wild food cookbooks, I had a go.

Here's the result. Not too bad. Both birds have been put in the freezer - I'm in London this coming week so we will enjoy this wild food delight later this month.
Next week, we have been promised a couple of ducks.

Having been laid up on the sofa with a badly twisted ankle, I'm going through your archives. Here you pluck and gut for the first are leagues ahead now! This is very encouraging but I am ten yrs behind you!
