>That sounds tasty… may have to try that this week on the road in MT!
>Mmmm, sounds good! Among the best things in the fall, besides the hunting, is the great food! I don't know about you, but for me, it's a damn good thing I start exercising a lot more in the fall, because the butter intake goes up about ten fold.
>Hey you guys! I was making this with pheasants before you were born. But nobody asked me. Just funnin' with ya' all. But I did. I also have done it with quail and ruffed grouse. Stay away now because of the carbs and blood sugar, etc. Some birddogdoc guy needs to be careful too, as I always remind him. Just his "conscience" on guard.
