    Extremely funny video. From Sweden- what breed is this bird?
     

  2. That is a Capercaillie. A type of grouse. Ive been working for several months now to obtain permits so i can raise and own a pair.

    Capercaillie - what an interesting bird. Males weigh about 4 kg!
    Lots of good eating on them.

    Larry Csonka hunted for them in Norway on his hunting show. They are very tasty so I understand.

    I bet the reporter was wishing he had a gun.
