James' New Bloggers

James has been up to his old tricks ferreting out fascinating new voices for the bloggersphere and they are up to his usual high standard.

Well I would say that wouldn't I, he discovered me!!

The latest addition to his sporting shooter blog network is a chap called Andy Richardson with two blogs; one about the hunting outfit he runs north of the border, and for the other, when not afield he's writing up his adventures as a smallholder raising, growing, cooking and pickling his own foods.

As the wild fowling season has come to and end on both sides of the pond Andy has an interesting post on shooting pigeons with an over the counter air rifle and turning them into a goulash, and on the west coast Hank (HAGC) has been cooking up some barn pigeons he shot at the start of the year.

Like most city dwellers i loathe 'flying rats' unless they're on my plate, so while i was looking for a picture from 'Stop The Pigeon' I found kill the pigeons, as you'll see it's a remarkable website!

Well worth a look
Thanks for reading
Your pal the bushwacker.

Hi Sten, good to have you back - we missed you! Glad you're enjoying Andy's blog, he's a fascinating character, and plans to add a couple of pigs to his menagerie shortly!

I'm just waiting for the beech buds to sprout so the pigeons are coming in nicely, then we'll have to get you back over for a spot of pigeon shooting.

Yeah it's good to be back in town. and a relief to have ended the on the road project for the time being.

I like the idea of some pigeoneering, i was hoping to trap some in my garden but they look a bit to 'cockney' to eat!

Is there any chance of your intrepid offspring doing a guest post about hunting in NZ?
Speak soon

Hey Sten,

Thanks for the shout-out. One thing though: The pigeon recipe is my own, not Miles'.

The Suburban Bushwacker said...

many apologies. I seem to have lost the power of reading anything not written in New Zealand during my trip.
I've now broken my own rule and done a post publication edit.

Say hi to holly and the funniest uncle in the world for me!
