Along with deer hunting, the older boys have added pheasant into their hunting repertoire.
Gary, the guy I have working on all my vehicles, called a couple of weeks ago and asked if the boys wanted to go with him on a local pheasant hunt. (It is great to have other people involved and teaching the children new skills) Since they DID want to go, I thought it would be a great experience for them, and a way to meet and to work with new people. While I stayed home to work on making chalkboards, they went out to get some meat for the family. And Nolan came back with a BEAUTIFUL bird.
Using a cast iron pan, Macy put all of her herbs on it, and roasted it in the oven for us to eat. And to my surprise, it was DELICIOUS! In fact, it had a better taste than the free-range chicken we eat regularly.
