About Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail

Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail covers all sorts of birds, from pheasant, quail and wild turkey to lesser-known birds such as snipe and rails. It also has an extensive section on small game animals such as rabbits, hares and squirrels. Not a hunter? This book covers the domesticated cousins of these game animals throughout. You’ll also find detailed information on how best to treat these various species in the kitchen, how to select them in the market, and how to pluck, clean and hang wild birds. A portion of the proceeds of every book sold will go to help the nonprofit conservation efforts of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, which will use the money to restore, maintain and expand habitat for all upland birds.
