Posted in response to a request. This was my grandmother's recipe for pheasant. We had/have a lot of hunters in the family and this was the best recipe for pheasant. I'm guessing on the serving size for 3 pheasants.

I left the birds whole, did everything the same, but instead of lemon juice, I stuffed them with tangerines. YUM! Thanks for posting
