This week we celebrate THE GREAT BRITISH GAME WEEK 2019!  With the season in full swing, and Christmas around the corner, now is a great time to prepare game birds from your shoot for your dinner table.

The rule in our home when shooting game is ‘if you took part in killing it, then you take part in eating it’. I’ve brought our children up to know that it is important that the animal is used as food to ensure its life didn’t end for sport alone.

But how exactly do you prepare pheasant, duck, grouse, quail or partridge?

I’ve scoured the internet for the best videos I could find to help you prepare your game birds. I hope this helps you to prepare your game birds and feed your families.
