Guts in. In this weather, assuming you would hang it in garage or similar anything up to a week would not be too long (as it's head shot and it's cold out there).

 

Weather due to possibly warm up at end of week so you might want to pluck and draw it after 3 or 4 days.

 

As already said it would be different if gut shot and the weather was warm and muggy when many people would prefer it not being hung for more than 1 or 2 days as they go pretty ripe very quickly then!

C'mon guys - we all know he broke the conditions on his ticket - ok - it's not a big deal but trying to shroud it in vagueness and interpretation is rubbish - just take it on the chin and don't do it again...

Your not alone, plenty of gamekeepers shoot old cock pheasants on the feed ride, birds which have obviously been injured, VERY OFTEN AFTER THE PHEASANT SHOOTING SEASON HAS ENDED the weapon of choice usually .22 rifle.. If it was a safe shot and you had the right to shoot whats the harm?
