advice re preparing game : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I have been invited to go skeet shoot next weekend but I have absolutely no idea how the game we bag can be prepared for the table. Does anyone have any information on eating these critters?

Hi, John,

I really don't mind shooting the little suckers, but they're harder than heck to clean and then you have to boil the daylights out of 'em to get 'em done and they still end up tasting a little "pucky". I'd skip it if I was you. LOL

Wishing you enough.

Thats something I don't have to worry about since I haven't been able to hit one yet! I'm not for sure but I think some people pour syrup on them. I don't know how they get them to softem up tho.

The only problem I have when I do hit one... is trying to gather all the pieces up so that I can cook it!

so here is some helpful or maybe not so helpful tidbits:

Boyfriend said to his blonde girlfriend, I am going to go skeet shooting .... but I don't know how to cook skeet.

What do you call 40 sky-diving lawyers? Skeet!

Skeet Soup -

Baked Skeet (Clay)


American inventor George Ligowski invented a replacement for live birds in 1880 made of baked clay and modeled after the clamshells he used to skim across water. Ligowski's clay pigeon quickly replaced feather-filled balls, the only other alternative to live birds, and just as quickly replaced the real thing.

Skeet- "my that is one tough bird"

"Honey, dinner is great (gag, cough), but a bit over cooked"

"Dear .. did you marinate this pigeon before you cooked it? a bit on the dry side"

"Oh! Honey!!" she exclaimed, "I dropped your little bird and it broke".

I think they would be the perfect entre to go along with my harder than He** biscuits and lumpy gravy!

Are you getting hungry yet????? :-)

Down here in the deep south we'uns know that skeet is the edible part of the Louisianna state bird...Miskeeto. Simmer them thangs in a black iron pot all week and serve with real hot sauce.
