1. FIELD DRESS ASAP
A bird should be field dressed soon after it is shot, particularly in warm weather. field dressing is a simple operation. first, lay the bird on its back and pull the feathers off from below the breastbone to the anal opening, clearing the area for the first cut. make the cut from the soft area below the breastbone down to the anal opening, being careful not to puncture the intestine. reach in and take out the viscera, pulling downward toward the anal opening. then remove the windpipe and crop.
