I pluck all my birds, and just pull out the inards. I than inject the birds with some marinade when I am ready to prepare them. Lot of different flavors and choices!! I use a poultry bag in a conventional oven in a shallow roasting pan at 325 to 350 degrees 15 minutes a lb. Coat the poultry bag with some flour and follow directions on venting the top of the poultry bag by cutting small slits at the top. They taste delicious this way and do not dry out!!

This pretty much sums up how I do it. The only difference is that I don't cut the legs off.

I swore after my first one that I'd never shoot another -- unless with my bow. That bird was way smellier than the worst cottontail I've ever dressed.

This is what I do also,quick and easy.

I'll vote with Champion 2. (And thank you Champ for the marinade suggestion)
Both skinning and plucking methods are listed by the NWTF and a few hints on Plucking.
Should I dumb into a bird dumber than me, Ill heat the water on the stove in this huge, big, large (common inside joke here, sorry) SS pot I got on the stove then set it on a bed of charcoal outside. (If I can get one of my kids here to carry it. GOD BLESS CHILDREN )
None-the-less here is the link.
Plus a link on proper injection of flavorings, for us new to that.
and a link to some not so common wild azzed flavors and spices, *IMHO*
Im one for believing a LOT of the flavor comes from the skin (fat, lol) so I'm hoping to be a plucking away by next weekend.
Luck to all.
