My neighbour, a retired Navy SEAL, and police SWAT detective, kept his .308 suppressed sniper rifle.  I swear it sounds like a pellet gun.  That’s next on my shopping list.  

I love shooting, but Ill not always have a neighbour that doesn’t mind me shooting a M1 or No. 4 from my back yard.

He's probably using heavy weight subsonic loads.
Just the sonic "KRAK" is louder than that.

Shamu, you are so right about butchering. In the last 10 years, I've found I've gone back to eating way more of the whole meat. Roasts, then meat for stew, meat pies. What's left gets ground up and made into sausage or into my jerky gun. Love the gravy wild meat can create!

Did you ever get to try the Umble Pie?

I actually did this fall! I used kidney and liver. I used a small block of chopped up pork for the lardons. Saffron is expensive! This was the first time I've made pie dough, but it worked. The only thing I left out was the sweet breads as I wasn't sure where they were located! I did have to boil the meat outside as we have a "No boil kidney" rule in the house. The first time I made steak and kidney pie at home was 33 years ago, when my wife was preggers. She walked into the house, sniffed, bolted to the bathroom and puked her guts out. The Umble Pie was excellent!

I'm going to say yes. 

Sweetbread is a culinary name for the thymus (also called throat, gullet, or neck sweetbread) or pancreas (also called stomach, belly or gut sweetbread), typically from calf (ris de veau) and lamb (ris d'agneau), and, less commonly, beef and pork.[1][2] The "heart" sweetbreads are more spherical in shape, while the "throat" sweetbreads are more cylindrical in shape.[3]

Various other glands used as food may also sometimes be called "sweetbreads," including the parotid gland ("cheek" or "ear" sweetbread), the sublingual glands ("tongue" sweetbreads or "throat bread") as well as ovary and testicles

Thanks, you beat me to it.
Yeah, just about every mammal has them. My father always used to prefer the ones from sheep though as he said they had a sweeter taste.
It used to be possible to buy them from a real old time butcher but I don't know if thats still possible with all the fuss about wasting syndrome & so on.

Regarding Umble pie, one of the big arguments against the dish being "leftover for the peasants" is the prices of the fruits & seasonings, it would not have been an inexpensive dish as saffron was more valuable than gold ounce for ounce back then!
