Of course it's entirely subjective. How gamey do you like your game?


I like it gamier than she does. Might give it another day or so.

It's been very cold here. I hung my pheasants for a week and they were fine and I'm not a big fan of very gamey meat.

When you said 'she' I assume you meant Tahir?

When discussing 'well hung and gamey', is Tahir name that springs to mind?

Gut like a rabbit saving as much blood as I can, cut the skin around the middle, skin off the back end then the front end?


Spot on and I would leave until the middle of the week.

Have a look at the belly skin every day and if it`s getting too green get it skinned and then gutted(that way you get to keep more of the blood.....yum!)

Great meat

Thanks guys... She's already getting a gamey smell to her, might have a look at doing the gare sooner rather than later (got to feed this to Ellie, remember).

That was nothing like as hard as it might have been:




She really did smell good and gamey, so I thought I'd do it this evening rather than wait. I think that the place she'd been hagning must have been a little warm.

Cleanish head wound, some pellets in the front legs too. So more or less all intact, but with a lot of blood lost. Jugular and carotid artery clean broke through, neck bone cleanly severed with three pellets still right on the bone. Hell of a shot, but a leaky one. Still, theres a decent amount of blood there, enough to thicken my gravy

Portioned nicely in the front placcy bowl. Look a bit bloody and gibbly, largely 'cos I'd just put them there with bloody, gibbly hands having just squeezed all the blood I could out of the heart and lungs. Oh, and the clotted bloody bits. But underneath the bloody handprints its good and meaty

What, as a picture? Too late now, it'll all be frozen by now ready to come out again on Friday morning, to be marinated for a dinner party on Saturday.
