D-Day (Drake Day)

Today was Drake Day.  Tim and a friend butchered four of the drakes.  I wasn't watching, so will spare the details unless Tim wants to add a post on that.  All went well for a first time.  Probably we will try one of them for dinner tomorrow after aging overnight.

After all the work, I hope it's good! They're awfully small, and the two of us probably won't get more than one meal out of them.  They were around 4-4.5 lbs alive, and 1.5 lbs cleaned and ready to cook.  A lot of that is bone and back parts that will probably go into soup stock.
