These days, pheasants are intensively farmed and fattened up before the corporate shoots, leading to lacklustre and flavourless birds. They seem to have lost their lean gamy characteristics over the years. If you do get the chance, however, buy a brace of hens with pliable breastbones (a normal sign of age, as the stiffer the breastbone the older the bird). The result will be well worth it.
