Them ditch parrots better watch out.... I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl....

Good luck. Deer are rutting here and I'm going out tomorrow.

You only have power over people so long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power - he's free again.

Rut doesn't start down here until the beginning of December.

Save me some backstrap and I'll trade birds for it...LOL

I still haven't eaten pheasant. Years ago a friend of mine shot both a pheasant and a mallard duck. He asked me over for dinner. We plucked them both, set them out on the table, went and watched some TV and drank some beers, then when it was time to start cooking, we went back into the kitchen. The cat had stolen the pheasant - we found some of it outside. So it was duck for dinner.

There are pheasants everywhere I live now, and it would be easy enough to get one - one way or another. Are they worth it? How do you cook them?

A man can be himself only so long as he is alone, and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom, for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.

The breast meat is awesome. Legs and thighs are really gamey. Those parts are good in soup after soaking in buttermilk.
