LOL I guess the answer is yes....and yes !!! LOL

I usually start cutting out the feathers before it thaws all the way ....that way it's not quite as smelly. Make sure you keep enough of the neck if you are saving the head.

I usually use a utility knife or razor blade. I work very carefully and cut out each feather. You can just pull a lot of the small ones , but cut out the bigger ones. I would recommend a pair of rubber gloves....my brother got a nasty staff infection from working on a dead bird...had a cut on his hand he didn't know about and the infection made him really sick !

Think ahead of time what you want off the bird because once you thaw you are committed cant rethaw and some of the birds were already ripe before the Repository got them in the first place whew!
Work outside if you can and yes wear gloves.
Rub vicks under your nose helps with the smell...
I dont mind it I guess working in a Chicken plant when I was a teenager destroyed my smell then gag reflex LOL
Use Regular ole Borax soap just sprinkle on dry all over the feathers your keeping it keeps the bugs off them and it will dry out any fat. I used that on a Wing Fan just put it in and doused it with the Borax laid it out how i wanted the wing to come out closed it up. Actually I keep all my spare and extra feathers in borax the bugs stay the hell away and they are clean smelling when i pull them out...

1. It's going to be gross and nasty.
2. Do it quickly but don't rush.
3. I recommend outside, even if it's cold.
4. That way, if you spew, you can go right back to work.

Never gotten a frozen bird, but I'd imagine that once it's thawed, you could do like I've always done to a bird, dunk em in a 5 gallon bucket if of hot water for a couple a minute and open them pores up and start pluckin. I think I might use Josiahs advice with the vicks though, I'm sure that suckers gonna be gamey once it aint a Popsicle any more.

When I got my full bird I cut off the wings and tail and any other part I wanted(needed). I then put them in the freezer in trash bags so they wouldn't get any riper than they were already. Took out one wing and used X-acto, worked on it till it started thawing out and I couldn't take the smell anymore, put them back in trash bag and refroze them. I did this over and over till I finished with all parts. I did all this inside the house and only had small flying fluffs all over me and all over the house and I mean all over. Have understanding wife that always helps.
Good Luck

Borax the whole pile of feathers too! Cleans and keeps out the little critters that would eat the feathers!

Worst bird I ever did was a fresh and I mean fresh turkey vulture... they smell nasty from the moment you cut the skin! Outside on a warm windy day for the sake of not hurling. Thaw out the whole thing and make sure no other animals can get near it while it thaws... otherwise you may still loose the bird. Keep the wing bones, many toss the bones without a thought and look for eagle wing bone whistles later.

So I'm assuming that your fresh road killed bird was first taken to the MNR for identification and you were issued a permit to salvage the remains? You do afterall under the FWCA , have 2 days to take a raptor to the MNR. If the species falls under the MBCA, you're not going to get to keep any part of it without appropriate permits. I would imagine if you didn't take it to the MNR for verification of cause of death and issued a subsequent permit that your hacking away at it might make it impossible to render an accurate cause of death.

Road kill or not, you are required to take any dead protected animals that you want to keep into the MNR for identification and pay for the permit... anything less is just poaching with a fancy name...just saying.

I agree with you, where I am I have the blessing of the Ministry. As well I get deliveries straight to the house if they find something. I also have several police officers and MOT employees that know me for clearing the roads and yes help avoiding more accidents. If they see me in ceremony they wait till I am done and then we talk. There are a few that deliver the fresh ones to dad's house to make sure it doesn't spoil.
So Yaahl,, no worries not a poacher!!!
