    Recommended Posts

    An excellent and very useful little video clip. I'll have to try and get some pigeon shooting sorted somewhere then I can get chance to try it. Until then, it will be saved on my computer :lol:

    A novice question - how long did you leave the bird after shooting it before doing this?

     

    Doesn't really matter, you can do the second they expire the only real difference is warmer thumbs the earlier you do it - on a cold day it's actually very pleasant doing a few :oops:

    Can Pheasants be done like that?

     

    I have heard of similar, the "quick" method on those I have seen involves leaving the wings on, standing on them as close to the body as possible then grabbing the legs and pulling like ******* :oops: I've never tired the crowning method on pheasant but I have heard of people who say it works...

     

    I usually pluck and draw them and go for the roast :sly:

    I tried that method on a pheasant by standing on the wings etc all that happended was that i ripped the legs clean off. Not sure if i was doing it right but that seemed all that could happen with it.

    Tried Pins method with 3 woodies a few mins ago.

     

    Took only 5 mins to do the three, my first effort. I can see how these can easily be done in under 30 secs a bird when you get in the swing. A lot less pussy footing around and a bit more brute strength and jobs a good 'un.

     

    Thanks, now all i have to do is cook 'em and eat 'em (the best part other than the shooting bit).

     

    Hopefully if they keep playing ball on my rape i'll have a steady supply.

    I sometimes draw and pluck them to roast one per person as a main if I am wanting to show off, for myself I always do it this way..

     

    I sometimes roast them on the bone but you need to make sure you cover them with something, bacon is a good choice with some butter underneath to keep them moist - regular basting is needed as well or the dining experience will be more Michelin SportMaxx than Michelin star :good:

     

    Most of the time I just do this way as an easy way to process them, then in batches I take the breasts off and pack / freeze / mince / use as I need.
