Re: Woo Hoo- 4 quail in one shot!
Thanks guys for the comments. While I understand the gravity of taking any life, be certain that I did thank the Lord above for my good fortune. I had been literally trotting and running after the birds for the better part of four hours before I managed to get these four. Up and down, sideways on hills covered in spiny bushes and cactus. ALOT of work for what you get.
As it is with most nearly flightless birds (turkey chicken pheasant chuckar etc.) they are white meat and happen to be very tasty. My family enjoyed them last night in a gravy sauce served over rice, with steamed broccoli and apple cider. Any quail feast is memorable because of all the effort put into procuring the birds.
