For my money, the time is well worth it for essentially doubling the meat you’re getting out of a bird. A tip for saving both time…

Grilled Asian Pheasant & Pineapple Kabobs

A RECIPE BY DANIELLE PREWETT

  From the Chef: I have always found that wild game pairs really well with fruity flavors, and this Pheasant and Pineapple Kabob recipe is the perfect combination of both savory and sweet.  The marinade has a bit of a Hawaiian flare to it from the pineapples and a little bit of heat from the chili sauce.  One important fact…

SUPER MOIST SWEET GRILLED DUCK

By Chef Eileen Clarke Waterfowl. We love to hunt them. But for many people, eating wild duck isn’t something they’re very fond of.

Blackened Quail

A few months back, a friend of mine opened up to me about his secret passion for woodcock hunting.  I, too, have an undeniable love affair with the American timberdoodle.  This migrating aspen and alder tornado is an awesome game bird for pointing dogs and an under-appreciated challenge for wingshooters.  This same anonymous friend shared with me a woodcock recipe…
