    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Good idea. I read the other day of some game birds from a syndicate day going to a food bank as well. Slightly surprised that its been accepted but very pleased.

    Fantastic idea, well done to those involved. Could make some much needed positive PR for shooting too.

    ive often wondered why this isnt done more the value of a pheasant still in feather especialy at this time of year is virtualy next to nothing and with very little training and equipment people could be shown how to prepare a bird ready for the table, ok they would have to help themselves a bit and pluck and draw the bird but the opertunity would be there for those willing to do it and the shooting comunity would be seen in a better light by the public, especialy the bigger estates who would have the most to offer as its the bigger estates who get the most flack from people with there big bag days.

    Good story in the news, for a change!

    In the USA, there are state-level groups like Virginia Hunters for the Hungry, which provide butchered and wrapped venison and sausages to church kitchens and directly to families. If you shoot a deer and have no place in the freezer for it, you can take it to one of their processors, who will skin and butcher it. And you can just donate some cash to pay the butchers a bit, so they are not doing the lion's share of work for free, and pay for transportation and storage. It's a great thing in many ways, and certainly makes a great many people and charity workers ( who tend to be politically liberal ) appreciate what hunting was originally all about.

    As it is not lawful to sell dead wild geese, could they be donated to a food bank?
