    i know where your at on this one, we have a lot of pink footed geese up here and years ago i was out on a regular basis and the freezer was full of goose breasts and legs, now a days i only have a couple of outings over the christmas holidays or late january and just get myself a few for the freezer but no big numbers now,

    skinning then is a doddle, just rip the skin on the breast and pull it off then just use a sharp knife to take the flesh off and then cut leg and thigh off, if you can when you take the feet off try and get the tendons out while bird is still whole,then enjoy ,

    had a phase of cooking pheasant in fruit juice once over, and some turned out very good i think best one was equal parts of apple orange and cranberry then make a sause out of juice,

    yes proberbly but there are people out there that cant afford much meat and lets face it pheasant is not that much different than chicken depending on how you cook it, and you cant give them birds to these people that would really appriecate them, dont know what othere people do with them but i just get a pheasant breast open it up lancashire or chedder cheese inside along with some cranberry wrapp in bacon place on tray in oven for 20-25 mins ,fantastic to eat,,

    i am sorry its nation wide no one wants pheasants in numbers this year, one shoot paying 20p a brace to get them taken away, another giving them to a smoke house and we have looked in to dressing birds and giving them to a food bank but HSE legistalation says no because of possible lead content so me and my dogs will be sick of pheasant by christmas and i will be looking forward to that turkey for once,

    yes same here i wont shoot another one again unless they get back up in to decent numbers, didnt shoot any last year just let em all go past, some shoots up here have impossed some heafty finds for shooting woodcock one shoot has set it at a grand donated to charity for shooting woodcock and this shoot used to have a couple of just woodcock days 20/25 years ago with 100 bird bags regular but not now.
