    Breast only for me the rest isnt worth the trouble. Pheasents and ducks-breast and legs. Rabbits-all the lot. Squirrels-back and legs(squirrels are very tough to skin but taste better than rabbit)

    Yeah, but we need a lot of lisencing etc before we are allowed to shoot one. Generally its only primary producers, they can aquire a culling lisence which allows them to shoot a certain number over the year. Unfortunately they are generally illegal to hunt otherwise, unless you are a professional hunter who does it to supply roo meat and skins.

    Heres a quirk of NSW law. We have 7 species of feral deer in NSW, and its usually fine for you to shoot feral animals on your own property, or if you have a hunting lisence for state forest etc. However, the government have decided that they can make money off it, so now 4 feral species are protected for most of the year, excepting their hunting season.
