The last time I got busted by the police they confiscated not only my airguns, which I could have got back at a latter date, but also my prized army issue machete which they did not offer back, along with my other gardening tools!
It's good to know that there seems to be good cross section of people who eat meat, hunt it and have respect for it, and veggies.
The worst thing you can do with any game is hang it. I think the traditional way in making meat almost rot is unnecessary. When you consider the slow methods of cooking you can use instead to tenderize it. Marinating meat is also a great way round the old practice. Pheasant is nice simply roasted and served with red wine sauce.
This year I will have duck breast, roasted shallots parsnips and potatoes, creamed swede and buttered cabbage all served with a red wine gravy.
Boxing day I will do Venison. which I have never really tried.
I made an onion marmalade earlier which I ate with cheese and crackers.
