No, never did. I'm sure you're going to let us know though right? Throw it in the stew pot with some onions and such.

Laugh When I first read the post, I thought it said woodchuck!!!!!! Yeah, I had woodcock once, about 6 years ago. I do remember it being real good, but I also remember saying you'd need 10 to make a meal.

I said the exact same thing to my wife last night adk that's crazy, but they say great minds think alike. I thought it looked a little like liver too. My wife made it taste amazing though man she used labbatt blue fish batter, man was it good.

We had a plate of about 4 ducks 12 grouse and 3 woodys last night for dinner. I think that says it all. Deeelicious. Cant wait for some fresh deer though, I just brought my bear and deer to the butchers gonna get some jerky made, I usually get a few boxes made. Nothing like it while your huntin, I never leave home without some.

Wow. I havn't had pickeral since my Great Grandfather was still alive. Speaking of beers... When I was deployed on ship we ran into one of your navy vessels. We were told you guys had beer on tap on your ships. When I looked through the binos I saw some guys standing by the rails with large mugs in there hands. That really got me. Do you know if that's true? We got to have two beer cans after sixty days at sea. They were all skunk millers. I noticed that they segrigated us Marines from the Navy guys though. They must have had the good stuff.
