Someone can certainly shoot ! I can’t see a pellet hole in any of the woodcock ,bet it was a cracking day out .

The pellets were in the heads which I cut off.

Both are excellent eating wrap them in some streaky bacon to keep them moist as they dry up very quickly.  We tend to do them and partridge in a crock pot roaster laid on top of a bed of mixed veg and sliced potatoes. One meal all cooked in the same pot.  Ours is one of thos 'chicke brick' thingies  the one is German Schlematof or something like that. Have two one by Lakeside. A must for ga,me cooking.

Finger food with a sideplate for the bones.

I used to shoot a few woodcock and snipe when I was a youth and someone told mum to simply shove them inside a pheasant to stop them drying out while roasting them slowly with  carrot and onion and when they start to smell good in the oven take them out to rest  then put the mash on; it works well to this day, not fancy but wow what a feast

Food of the gods indeed jdog.  Snipe, teal and woodcock doesn't get much better..Most of my game shooting is woodcock and duck. So am fortunate to always have a healthy supply for our table.

Would it be reasonable to ask you ditchman, why you never ate or even tasted a woodcock,  when you shot so many many?

I read somewhere that woodcock brain is a bit of a delicacy. I thought it was woodcock entrails that were spread on toast. They take a carp every time they take off so are always clean.

ive picked them up loads of times and i have always let alot go thro,,,,.....on one drive i was in a carr at strumpshaw....and it was a mixed pheasant and duck drive and shed loads of woodcock came thro and i shot 2 left and rights one after the other ...with a witness either side........but as to eating them i for some reason ..never been brave enough to do so........most of the shoots i have been on where woodcock are in the bag....the guns are prohibitted from taking them at the end of the day as they fetch serious money with the dealer or resturaunt outlets...........
