Quail with Rice

It’s Wild Game Wednesday!

Bobwhite Quail season opened on Monday, and runs through Dec. 24, then reopens Dec. 26-Feb. 28 (8 daily, 24 possession). Prehistoric evidence of bobwhite quail in Pennsylvania dates back as early as the 1400’s with the discovery of their bones found in early human settlements. Through the advent of recorded history, early peoples utilized quail as a food source.

The northern bobwhite quail has been a long-standing resident of Pennsylvania until just recently. The Game Commission has been working hard to restore quail habitat and bring bobwhites back to their northern range.

It’s Wild Game Wednesday!

This week’s recipe is for our rabbit hunters. The cottontail rabbit is one of the most popular small game animals and it’s also the wild animal most often seen in towns and suburban areas around Pennsylvania. Because of its popularity and conspicuousness, the rabbit intrigues both those who hunt and those who simply enjoy nature.

Hunter-Style Grouse

It’s Wild Game Wednesday!

The ruffed grouse has been Pennsylvania’s official state bird since 1931, and its beauty is admired by hunters and non-hunters alike. Grouse are still plentiful in parts of Penn’s Woods, and they can be found throughout much of the northern part of our continent in areas of suitable habitat. Grouse are gallinaceous birds and are related to quail, turkeys, pheasants and ptarmigan. The statewide grouse season opens this Saturday, Oct. 13 and runs through Nov. 24. Good luck to our grouse hunters who plan to be afield this weekend and beyond.
