Pigeon Butchery

Recommended Posts

Morning All,

Heading out for a shoot in a few weekends on my own, recently moved house and thus cannot butcher my own. Is it acceptable to take to the butchers and ask them to do so? Either give me a cut of the birds of payment.

 

Thanks.

Welcome to Pigeon Watch!

Personally we do all the bloody stuff in the field and bring the breasted birds back in plastic bags for the freezer.

If you are intent upon getting your butcher to do the work for you, visit him and ask. I am sure if you are a good customer he may well do the work for you for a price.

Last I heard off a butcher near me was £5 a pheasant fully prepared for the table , plucked, gutted , cleaned & cling wrapped ready for the oven

Personally I just take out the breast meat from pigeons and this is easily done out in the field, Meat in one bag and carcase in another for disposal ..DON'T CHUCK THEM IN THE HEDGE BOTTOM ..    You can simply give them a swill when you get home and in the freezer, smoker, crock pot whatever.  Hot smoked pigeon breasts, sliced thinly are delicious or look at the pineapple recipe I put on a day or two ago.

Hiya,

Just joined pigeon watch this morning. I shoot clays but I’m interested in doing a bit of wild shooting now and then and I’m wondering how you get into it? I live in Warrington north west. Any info would be great

Once shown it is very easy I once made pigeon pate which was spot on

Good morning, go along to the Welcome To Pigeon Watch Section and introduce yourself.

Then have a good look around the site and read lots.
