    Poor rooster

    Saw the body on the side of the road when heading up to my trap line at the Park went a couple of km then came back picked him up and took him home to rest
    Fresh blood so a recent kill sadly one side is missing some feathers so no good for a tax job - unless someone wants a slight defect
    Mindie would have liked to cart it around but I thought best to leave it intact
    In the freezer so might be good for a dog trainer I love pheasants so not sure that I want to part it for several people
    Let me know if you want to pick it up Te Puna area
    I saw a hen rise about 1m from a trap that I was about to service looked over the log to see where the nest was a very small chick flapped off into some rubbish so I beat a hasty retreat then about 50m along the track a rooster rose from a few meters away and frightened shit out of me roosters were calling all round the bush and lots of pairs of Quail all around the trip checked about 50 traps as I also did a couple of days back and not a sign of a rat or cat

    Had a chef from the UK tell me once that he rated pheasant so highly he'd stop for roadkill... I'm assuming he meant if he was the one who had killed it! Yet to try it myself, haven't had the opportunity (to shoot or stop for roadkill )

    Some fulla was looking for a pheasant for training... hopefully he'll pop up.
    I was going to twist necks on a couple of my boys, but been a bit sidetracked and they're not doing any harm

    If it's fresh eat it.
    I get birds of varying descriptions hit fences and power wires here occasionally. Some of them are to good to waste so if they are fresh they get eaten. Usually the hawks get them within a couple of hours, so the ones I find are fresh.

    Overkill is still dead.

    Hey! Yep that's me, was looking for my mates Vizsla, he's up in Ngunguru. Recon it would go OK frozen in the post? He comes down to Hamilton for work sometimes and I usually catch up with him, but covid has changed that slightly. I'll touch base with him and see if he's coming down any time soon. Cheers
