Never seen this method before. I'm definately going to do this from now on. I always debone before cooking.

Thanks for sharing Sallysue!

Looks like it's something that is going to take some practice to get it down.

I started doing them like that after seeing a video of that method for quail a couple year ago. It takes a slight bit of patience not to rip them at the beginning but it is the only way I do them now. That video showed great detail.

I do alot similar to that but without running my thumbs down the inside. Easier using my knife the same way. Do you guys pluck all the feathers or what do you do to open it up?

That bird looks full of corn

Interesting, will give that a try. I like leaving keel bone intact for grilling, and if you don't open up the chest cavity you cant get out the liver/heart/gizzards, they make some good eats too.

most of yall are too lazy, but picked whitewings have a nice layer of fat under the skin that makes a wonderful stew...
plus the hearts and gizzards add some nice giblets to the gravy...
take about 3-4min per bird to prepare them this way...
we pick teal, too...
little harder than picking a dove, but so good in the pot...
yeah, I know... "we're bacon wrapping and grilling them"
but there are many other ways to enjoy them

we have at least one dove fry each year....
make some gravy from the drippings...
fry 'em right and the small leg and wing bones crunch right down...

Use the finger and the thumb, flick the wrist. It's as easy as popping off that bra strap baby.

Not sure I need a sharp knife in my hand after the guns are put up, but that's a genius way to do it.

one question, I guess the game warden wouldn't have a problem with it? same as usual just no bone.

That's almost exactly how I do it. I think you even get a little more meat more easily than using a knife to de-bone.

I breast my dove but do it a bit differently. Hers is a simpler way I think.
