did anyone watch the roadkill chef last night on bbc3?Although the business of eating roadkill doesnt exite me much,there were some interesting tips on furraging,where to find giant puffballs,uses for nettles and so on.the squirrel what he cooked looked delicious,must have a go at that this summer,mmm........if no-one caught the programme,definately worth a viewing in the future :idea:

ive had squirrel roadkill, cant say it was much good, but then i didnt have much in the way of seasoning or side veg either. It had been run over by the 4 ton truck that we had just been turfed off on a survival exercise.

muntjac you eat like  a king,how about gudgeon fried in butter like henry the 8th,gotta try a squirrel,the meat looked well tasty,see ray mears with his two fish earlier ,a trout and a chub,i find chub a bit earthy with no lemon prior to cooking,cant beat a bit of fresh river caught fish especially if it has been poached,muntjac do you work on a farm or an estate?

you know removing course fish is a hanging offence  :D
my old fella used to tell me about thredding worms onto a length of wool and leaving that over night and when you pull it out in the morning there would be loads of snigs on it.
feed the soil not the plants
organicish
you learn gardening by making mistakes

Correct me if I am wrong - but isn't the season closed for a reason?

yes it is the closed season in april i think  for rivers is for breeding but i believe ponds dont count in some places , eels are not in that situation when fyke net caught , they run from august to end october for migration and is when we catch them . as for coarse fish  we do catch them but let them go .in winter we take pike to cull them on our coarse river going through the estate
