anyways i decided to sit in the woods and shoot one from a distance.

it worked a treat, i got a head shot( airgun) and killed it outright...... now i know its not sportsman like to do what i did, but hey as long as i respect the breeding season feb-oct, i class it as lawful.....

i cleaned it and ovened it on the same day and it was beautiful...

we are gonna do a net catch one day too hopefully well get 2-3 in one go for the freezer...
well done bonesy , just watch out for the old bill though if youre doing that.

i prefer flighting meself, but as long as youre doing it in a clean efficient manner i don't see a problem

you can also be more selective and pick the drakes.
"ok, squirrels have lovely fluffy tails and can perform clever tricks to nick the food off your bird table. But they are a damn nuisance, there is plenty of them and they happen to be delicious, I say, lets eat them " HFW

if you're going to be dumb, you gotta be tough
