It felt like a proper coming of age right of passage type thingy, as its happening in the winter and around my birthday. so it felt more significant than otherwise.

Unless they're for roasting it's quicker and simpler to skin pheasants than faff about plucking them IMHO.

I'll just do whatever Brownbear/Madam Bear tell me to do.... I think it is to be roasted...

It makes getting wet, cold & messy a pleasure, apparently

I went out on Sunday to accompany my friends doing some rough shooting. The first time I've been out with La Chasse. We saw very little - one woodcock and a hen pheasant.
But we have a nice lunch of Pheasant and now I can tell the difference between roe deer poo and sheep poo! So not a complete waste then.
Here in France the hunt is more regulated. To have a permis you have to pass a theory and practical exam.

That reminds me, do you want the hide dismantling, or do you think the cows won't bother it? I'm letting them in there on Thursday.
