'Cooked pheasant tonight with a cream sauce. Pitifully, what caught my eye on the recipe that I've kept from a Field & Stream since at least the '90's, was that it called for a 1/4 cup of gin.

It didn't suck. And the wife did all the dishes.

I rarely, like in maybe twice a year, cook (not counting grilling and scrambled eggs). I cooked at a country club in college. I cooked Chicken Cacciatore on the third date with my now wife (we call it the "seduction date"). I've rarely cooked since. 28 years later, she's still quite miffed about that.

The gin was fine. No need to change it. I was commenting more on my eye for booze.

Well, it did cross my mind, but my "plating" ain't quite as purty as what I've seen on here. I've got 16 more birds in the freezer, so I'm sure I'll try this recipe again.

Found it. Made it for a sit down dinner for 6 after a trip from North Dakota. Used both pheasant and sharp-tail grouse It made a decent presentation. My wild game bird plates helped with that.

This last batch of pheasant we processed differently. We let them hang for 3 days at 55 degrees then plucked (or tried to) and gutted. Made pheasant schnitzel out of the breasts and slow cooked the thighs and legs. I let the legs go too long and had to pick out all the tendons.

The schnitzel was excellent and the taste was better than ones we skinned and froze without hanging. We started doing this with ducks as well. As long as they are not gut shot, those birds (any kind) are drawn same day.

Next batch we will extend the hanging time a day to see if it improves. I think 2-3 days for pen raised and 3-4 for wild. Old roosters get 5 days. That's my theory.


No matter how high a duck flies a hammer still breaks a window.
