    Evening Pilchards,

    Food for thought , what is your favourite pre shoot meal ?

    My new pre shoot meal is retro food heaven

    https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&r...nRXxT7kH7uf9gSFsCE9y7VQ&bvm=bv.48705608,d.d2k

    The heavy saturated fat and carb heavy crum slow my heart rate down enough to land three pellets on top of each other , one hole stylee , I'm soooooooo glad otherwise I'd have to shift the old Haggis Cannon on , and we wouldn't want that!
    The ability to hold that steady that you could thread a c0ck ring on a lady bird is incredible and it must be down to this super food !

    Personally, I like the 70's classic prawn cocktail before a shoot.
    If the shoot's been good then I celebrate with a Jubbly.
    Call me old fashioned...

    deep fried lard are a must for pre shoot chow with deep fried squirrel in peanut butter for me and a vole or shrew for Kes.
    i can then shoot like c*ck for the first twelve tin chickens then shoot mediocre for next 38 works every time.

    but if realy trying a FRAY BENTOS steak and kidney pud followed by cling peaches and dream topping food heaven and ticks all the major food groups
    hows that my ferret friend with large genitalia?

    Nice one Rob!!! Personally I work way through Delia's basics cook book finished off with a yellow canary "Ortolan" style. For those of you not familiar with the French delicacy of "Ortolan" ...(which is a small bird of the Bunting family)....the delicacy is created by first catching a live bird then drowning it in fine French cogniac so that the bird ingests the spirit, it is then roasted slowly in the oven and presented in a small wooden box. It is then eaten whole in secrecy with your head covered in a towel. Neil. PS: jus found this on forbidden food.

    The birds must be taken alive; once captured they are either blinded or kept in a lightless box for a month to gorge on millet, grapes, and figs, a technique apparently taken from the decadent cooks of Imperial Rome who called the birds beccafico, or "fig eater", When they've reached four times their normal size, they're drowned in a snifter of Armagnac.

    Cooking l'ortolan is simplicity itself. Simply pop them in a high oven for six to eight minutes and serve. The secret is entirely in the eating. First you cover your head with a traditional embroidered cloth. Then place the entire four-ounce bird into your mouth. Only its head should dangle out from between your lips. Bite off the head and discard. L'ortolan should be served immediately; it is meant to be so hot that you must rest it on your tongue while inhaling rapidly through your mouth. This cools the bird, but its real purpose is to force you to allow its ambrosial fat to cascade freely down your throat.

    When cool, begin to chew. It should take about 15 minutes to work your way through the breast and wings, the delicately crackling bones, and on to the inner organs. Devotees claim they can taste the bird's entire life as they chew in the darkness: the wheat of Morocco, the salt air of the Mediterranean, the lavender of Provence. The pea-sized lungs and heart, saturated with Armagnac from its drowning, are said to burst in a liqueur-scented flower on the diner's tongue. Enjoy with a good Bordeaux.

    Don't think you can fit a whole badger in your mouth anyway Simon, maybe Neil Daniels would have a go...but only if its been drowned in Cider.

    Please note. Badgers are. Protected species, apart from from 2 trial culls in Somerset and Gloucestershire. So please don't try to drown them any in any type of spirit.

    I'm beginning to realize that your Gimp Suits have nothing to do with gun support.
    I thought that only the top shooters wore them - but, once more, I've been misled. :eek:o :rolleyes:
    They're really obesity containers, aren't they?
    And some people who wear them, can't even fasten them up, at the front. These are obviously those who are champions; and who feed accordingly :D

    PS:
    As I couldn't eat a whole badger: and can't hit a kill zone to save my life, I'll stick to conventional food

    Mine is a full English cooked breakfast (minus black pudding :( ) on the journey across the Solent. As most journeys are over an hour (further GP's are nearly 3hrs) which gives the stomach time to digest such food to a suitable level ready for the event.

    I tend to keep some dried fruit/granola bars and some water/squash/flash of tea in my gun bag. If it looks like it will be hot then I freeze the squash the day before and then it is a nice and cool drink.
