I've read that pheasant was dry and tough. Well, that was either bad info or my son is one heck of a good cook. This afternoon, he grilled some of the pheasants my grandsons and I had such a good time shooting last February and they were really good. He wrapped them in bacon and mixed up a special seasoning to baste them with. I'm not saying they were melt-in-your-mouth juicy and tender but they were equal to a lot of fried chicken I have eaten with a much better flavor. Brought back memories of how much fun I had watching the two grandsons go after those birds!
