Are you kidding? Learn how to kill a bird.

Not sure exactly why but it disturbs me that anyone would think they need such a silly product.

How to dispatch a bird:

Grasp the bird by its bill placing your thumb under the bill with thumb pointed towards the base.
Put your hand by your side with the bird held the way I described above.
Now twirl the bird once or twice. You will feel it's neck snap. Don't get all crazy or you'll twist it's head off.

The bird may flap and jump but once you feel that snap...it's dead.

You each owe me $2 + shipping and handling. :grooving:

Bite the heads off? Na, just crack the skull and squeeze the brain a bit is all you gotta do.

I don't see much need for the little tool you posted, but to each his own. I wring the neck or hit the head on the blind I am hunting in. Just as easy and I don't have to try and find something to kill the bird for me.

we dont have a dog, so we use the carsons and scoot accross the lake to the birds, at which point we givem a whack with the paddle. IMO i couldnt care less how someone finishes a wounded bird. It has to get done one way or another if you dont make the kill in one shot.

When I need to dispatch a bird, I just shoot it. I usually carry a gun when I'm hunting.......





(Actually, I just bite the heads....exactly like Phil does. Quick. Easy. My teeth are always with me, in their own carrying case, and weigh little.)

They have all kinds of gadgets in Europe. I think they call them Game Priests

Glad to see mention of the use of 'priests' as a humane method of dispatch. That tends to be the main method in the UK and Europe .... though there has been a recent trend in holding a bird by the head and swinging it.

In general, swinging a bird is frowned upon over here as it is deemed to be a rather crude method of dispatch and not as 'instant' as other methods. Many shoots have banned this practice by beaters, pickers-up etc as they do not want paying Guns to see what is regarded as not the top method of dispatch. Some shoots have public footpaths etc and members of the public have reported the swinging of birds to the RSPCA as they have seen birds continue to flap their wings and bounce around on the ground after such treatment.

Using bird dispatchers is a most unusual practice on a shoot - and those who have tried using them have sometimes caused the head to detach ..... not something we want for birds that are to be hung for a few days.

Some people use a 'nail' and quickly push it straight through the back of the head and into the brain.

I've seen some older people, many years ago, use their teeth to crack a skull. But most of us have held sick game birds (particularly in recent times when shoots 'over-stock) - which can smell and feel 'powdery' to the touch. There is no way that anyone I know in shooting circles would use such a method these days, just as most people now wash their hands with anti-bacterial wash before touching their lunch.

So, that's why we use the good old 'priest' to 'administer the last rites'. Easily carried in a pocket. bag ,or stuffed up a sleeve with the cord round the wrist.

Here at shootpics.co.uk we sell hundreds of priests each year ...... often the beautiful wooden ones which tend to be available during the game shooting season (Aug - Feb 1).

I was shown how simple it is to break a bird's neck by snapping it straight back so the vertebrae are locked by an orthopedic surgeon who assured me the resulting flapping bird is quite dead for humane purposes. And I've since put the question to other MDs and a pathologist of that same opinion.

Over here, it's how the action is perceived that is important ..... due to 'public opinion'. The public demands a quick, humane death .... and who can argue with that? It doesn't seem to matter these days what professionals think .... what counts is what the public thinks! :-)
