By the way, it is against the law to pick up a bird you have knocked down, but quite legal if someone else knocked it down.
Yes, that's true, so you kill em and I'll bag em.
I sometimes see roadkill and have thought about using it as dinner.
Is there anything I should avoid in rabbits and pheasants?
I have a youtube on gutting a rabbit. Just need to catch a bugger now!
But pheasants. Yes, they sound good and will be very common soon. Shame to leave all that fresh meat lying in the road.
Any tips on preparing and cooking roadkill?
I have heard that plucking a pheasant is easier when it's still warm.
I also heard that they are best cooked in a pressure cooker because they are pretty tough.
Haven't got round to having a go myself yet, but I have the inclination. My main worry is poisoning myself.
And what do you do with all the feathers and guts?
