    It was getting a little late, so I took the shortcut of just the breast. I've also done this with a hearty type of mushroom and large onion pieces. Can add zuchini, asparagus, artichoke hearts, whatever trips your trigger, some salt, pepper, basil and oregano, butter. Spoon over a bead of pasta.

    I know they have a stronger taste, which is why my wife and daughters don't like them.

    I also make woodcock rumaki appetizers with them. Marinated in soy sauce, Montreal seasoned. Wrap a half breast with a couple slices of water chestnut in a slice of bacon, skewer with a toothpick. Grill [i prefer on a charcoal grill] or broil, add some brown sugar and allow that to carmelize. Even people who don't eat wild game go crazy over them.

    Yeah, thanks for the recipes Ranger. Uplandhunter came into the shop today. He said he has a few in his freezer. I might see if I can get a couple from him to cook up.

    Thanks again
