I feel terrible writing this but it's something that's plagued me since the early days with air rifle and bunnys. I'd love to say everything I shoot is eaten but it's the opposite; I'm fine with taking the shot, cleaning and butchering the animal but I can only consume a mouthful or two before I'm on the brink of gagging!
last night, I shot my first roe. Gralloch done and jointed as best I could (not as bad as it may sound). So, today I've done a haunch with onion, rosemary and bay leaves, covered with bacon and cooked. It smells lovely, looks great and even tastes excellent but one mouthful was all I could take!
Thing is, I'm not thinking about anything or talking myself out of it, as far as I'm aware, it seems to be subconscious. Anyone know a way of getting over this? On this occasion nothing will go to waste but I really would like to be able to enjoy the meat I've put on the table (not to mention the creature that lost its life in the process).
