    Beautiful swan! My dad once `accidentally` shot one (swans legally belong to the Queen over here) and mum cooked it, have to say it was as tough as old boots and not very tasty at all! That could have been mums cooking though. :D

    This was not on today's agenda but this morning my wife went to the freezer for some wild pork sausage and found everything completely thawed. On saturday my 2 year old niece was at our house and apparently she unplugged the freezer that was half full of wild game meat and a few of last season's birds for mounting, including this red ruddy. Only now he's REALLY RED after thawing for 5 days wrapped in plastic.
    We ate some sausage and it appeared to be ok. Maybe the spices helped preserve it. I don't know how the elk, deer, javelina and antelope will fare.
    :mad:

    Glass Eye, do you actually have javelina in your freezer? We eat wild hog here in S. Texas, but Javelina???

    My Mexican wife knows how to cook it. It's one of our favorites.

    Aaahhh. Our hispanic population here in san antonio know how to cook them too. I just have never tried them. You can come to texas and every rancher would love for you to thin the herd a little. All the collared peckery you want.

    Alexm, Here I thought I was the only one that felt like a 80 year old back after the fleshing machine. You can't blame a guy for trying :) :) ;)
