At work in the fields

lying in the fields

I crawled through a hedge yesterday, like you do, and found myself under a tree. I took my rifle out of its bag, popped in a pellet and lay back against the tree. A flutter - and a wood pigeon landed in the branches above my head.

The times I've cooked them in the past, I realised last night, I've overcooked them; they don't need long: twenty minutes in the oven yesterday and this one was superbly tender and delicious.

  2. Funnily enough, I had the pleasure of chatting with Mr Suburban Bushwacker today and we agreed that watching the sun come up on a North California vinyard while hunting turkeys constituted our idea of heaven!
