Bird course, please.

I'm looking at a frozen pheasant. Assuming I want it for Christmas dinner, what do I do?

I've looked online and I'm getting wildly inconsistent advice: brine, don't brine, roast with wild rice, don't roast and braise with fruit, &c. I suspect some of the advice pertains specifically to wild game, some to farm-raised, but it's hard to tell. A further complication: this bird claims to be from a "game farm" in Wisconsin, whatever that is. Does that mean it counts as wild, farm-raised, or somewhere in between?
It's about a three-pound bird, frozen solid. I'd be most grateful for any advice.
