    good morning.here is a little picture that I could not refuse to share. guess what it is , thats right ,it is three robins that I shot with a bb- pellet gun yesterday.here in town its the only way to get birds without getting into jail.the only drawback is that I have to be careful of cars and houses. my wife deep fried the robins and cooked rice and gravy. and cornbread, and fries. however I was the only one to eat the robins. as the wife or daughter does not eat them. oh well. it was great.:big_smile: have a blessed day

    Holy crap now thats funny. To each his own though how do they taste by the way. Out of curiosity how much meat is there all together( how many to get a decent meal)?

    as a boy, robins were easy targets but the only birds we'd take back to eat were the occassional dove. what do they taste like?

    i love doves but robins? Even if they tasted good I just couldn't do it. I love being woke up by robinsong outside my window in the spring and summer.

    I always thought Robins were a protected song bird:eek:oooh:. I have ate doves but never heard of anyone eating a song bird. I would have gotten a pretty good whoopin when I was a kid if I even thought about shooting at a song bird. All well like was said to each his own I guess.

    Man, Things must be mighty tough in SC to have to eat robins!!! I know that killing them (for food or not) here in Ky, carries a hefty fine. I also thought that they were a protected species across the board.

    I have heard of people eating them, but I think I'll pass, I have eaten wild
    pidgeons, which were OK.

    My cousins and I used to shoot them with pellet guns and clean them when I was about 8-10 years old. My aunt would cook them up and they were quite good, about like dove....don't remember that much of eating them, but fun to hunt down by the swamp!

    I am forced to agree with Brother J.W.! And they are PROTECTED here in MO too!
    If things are that tough over there then maybe we need to think about putting a food package together for the man!????
    I'm sure I can come up with a few canned goods to send!

    here in s.c a lot of people eat robins. they taste like a black bird to me.I have never tried a dove, but they would I guess taste about the same. around here we always took birds for a table meal.its funny how things are so different from one state to another.hope I haven't offended anyone. by the way , has anyone ever tried a yellow hammer. this is a bird that roosts in the top of an old barn. we would use a flashlight and climb up in the top at night and catch them with our hands, sometimes we could get 3 or 4 from one barn.

    That is a pretty cool pic. I never knew of anyone eating robin, but I guess I wouldn't mind trying now. I'd like to try those yellow hammers too lol.
