HUNTING THE LYRE BIRD

This article appears to report a hunting trip somewhere to the east of Queanbeyan but the Lyrebird is also native to the ACT so the following post might prove useful to the average citizen.

Ever wondered what a Lyrebird tasted like? Or about the best way to hunt a cock? Well wonder no more. I have found an excellent 1860's guide to shooting lyrebirds and the extra tricks needed to secure the males for their beautiful tail but sorry no recipes...
