    Lure Plans?

    A Good Game Pie

    Venison, pheasant, hare and rabbit, if I am lucky a bit of boar. Thats it with a bit of salt and pepper, a splash of red wine, and a good pastry Well when I do a game pie, I found the best tactic is to be simple. Never use pigeon and as said before I think partridge is too good for a mix! I use venison, pheasant, hare and rabbit and if I am lucky to get hold of some then some boar. I cook it like this. Melt some butter in a large frying pan/saucepan, add a few chopped shallots and season this with a couple of sprigs of rosemary and a few juniper berries, and just let this cook a bit (about a minute if that!) add the meat diced up, I normally stagger it so venison 1st, then the hare, then rabbit. Let all this brown making sure that it doesn't stick. Add a glass of port or red wine, make sure it's a decent one, if you wouldn't drink it don't cook with it! Let this cook for about 15/20 minutes stirring every now and then so not to let anything stick then top up with a splash of water, season with a bit more salt and pepper, and simmer for a few minutes Take of the hob and let it sit off the heat for about 10 minutes to let all the juices soak into the meats, and the flavours infuse and then add the mix into the pie dish and place pastry on top make a slit in the middle, brush with a beaten egg and place into a preheated oven at about gas mark 5/6 and let it cook for about 30/40 minutes. Always works for me.

    Sloe Gin

    Don,t forget to prick the sloes,I freeze mine overnight,or pick after first frost,works just as well with damson's,prick each one down the side with a fork, You are spot on matey, I forgot to say, I freeze my sloes and then defrost them before using too I always seem to have better luck when they are still frozen.
  7. I have been asked by the head of estates at my workplace if I could find someone to flush foxes to his gun, we have a lot of livestock and are having no luck with controlling the numbers of the foxes on the land, we are shooting a lot and nothing seems to dent the population. If anyone is interested them PM me. JoeD

Hows everyone elses cider coming on? JoeD

    Dog And Cat Laws

    My other half (works in animal care) had to go on a dog law seminar and if a dog attacks a human your in the pooper but cats are technically classed as knowones property and you cannot in a court of law get prosecuted for killing a cat, via dog, gun, trap or any other method. But the second you tell anyone that your dog will get set on an animal then the people can say that they where threatened by your dog and that you have told them your dog can be dangerous. Stupid laws and all that.
  12. My work has a disused orchard that they have given me permission to do as I please with and have thought about bees has anyone got and simple plans that I could borrow as I don't like buying if I can build myself.
