Early-sea­son ducks

Sporting Gun - - Letters -

Do you shoot early-sea­son ducks and geese? I al­ways think there isn’t much point as they are full of pin feath­ers. I would like to know what you think and how you pre­pare them? Tom says: This is down to per­sonal choice. I know that it isn’t the best to shoot birds when they aren’t fully coloured up and still have the dreaded pin feath­ers. How­ever, I do still shoot ducks and geese early sea­son. I nor­mally skin them and breast the main fil­lets — this means that the pin feath­ers aren’t a prob­lem. I usu­ally find that they have plenty of meat on them still but not the fat lev­els. The fat doesn’t bother me as I breast them any­way.
