Is there a reliable way to get the bird shot out of my dinner?

    I love duck and if I keep eating it like I do one of these steel BBs will break a tooth. Has anybody had any luck with the little metal detectors? I try to inspect the birds closely but I always miss some shot.

    My dentist is a hunter and he told me he wished he could put his business card in every box of bird shot and also every box of Grape Nuts :)

    Just slice slice th meat real thin before you eat it. I use Kent 1-1/4 oz. #2 3" magnums, try using those as they seem to be easier to see before you get a mouthful of bird shot.

    Get one of the small, hand held pinpoint metal detectors. These are used by us treasure hunters to locate small items after the hole is dug to eliminate further digging and probing. Run it over the duck after the feathers are removed.

    I have had some experience with metal detectors in my carpenter shop. Although I purchased an American made commercial device early on [a hand wand similar to the devices used in airports years back] Harbor Freight - China makes a knock off. Just bring in a piece of wood with the leg of a staple imbedded into it, then a whole staple else ware.
    It should be able to pick up steel parts that small. If it can detect a staple leg, shot will be no problem. Although once a common problem, I have been pleased with the results of having nothing of metal pass through my blades in about twelve or more years.

    go to the sporting goods stores they haves ones for detecting shot..
    This is what you want, has a battery and detects all metals in the birds or whatever your about to dine on. cheap insurance
