    Hello:flower:,
    My DH has brought home some pheasant, just wondering if its safe to eat as it's been shot and will probably still have shot in it? - i didn't even think about it if DH hadn't asked!!:dohh:

    You'll be Ok, just don't eat the lead shot (which you wouldn't anyway!). Last time I ate pheasant i nearly cracked a tooth biting into the shot by mistake - just wasn't expecting it in a restaurant to still be there!

    I ate deer and partridge a few weeks ago without even thinking.. now I'm not sure it was a good idea, but I asked my doctor and she said it's ok just know that it's well cooked!
