In the UK, so I believe (unless it's one of those urban (rural) myths), it is illegal to stop and pick up a pheasant if you hit it.
If you weren't the one who hit it, that's fine though.

This is to stop people using their car as a deliberate poaching weapon.

I leave them but remember when I was young we regularly had rabbits hanging outside the house in the morning. My dad used to have an early morning van run and would just clip them with the bumper so as not to squash the rabbit. He even used to drive on the grass verge to get them.

Is it just me, or has the poll room died... or polls died? Still don't get why they must be in a separate lounge... oh, well! :P

Leave it !

I catch plenty of fresh rabbit and I know a pub that sells very reasonably priced venison. I think it's a coincidence though that he's on the border of a country park.

My mate turned up a while back and offered me a pheasant. I said 'I thought the season finished two weeks ago?'

'Bloke in front of me clipped it' he said.

I also have a rabbit in the freezer, dread to think where he got that!!

Doesnt it all depend on how fresh the kill is, and how much damage was caused. I'd imagine a rabiit hit at 70mph isn't really going to be edible
