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.

On Wild Game Wednesday, we take a moment to recognize one of the most important reasons people take to the woods and fields to hunt: to fill their freezers with types of fresh, organic meat. These weekly posts include delicious, easy and seasonal wild game recipes from the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Game Cookbook that you and your family can prepare.

Let us know if you try this recipe. Enjoy!

It’s Wild Game Wednesday!

We deemed this week “Pheasant Week” to get our pheasant hunters excited for the upcoming season and provide all our followers with some fun pheasant facts. Did you know that nearly a quarter of a million pheasants will be stocked in the field this year? Male pheasants (roosters) will comprise 75 percent of the releases.

If you’re a pheasant hunter, or you are thinking about giving it a try this season, then this week’s recipe is for you to keep in mind. Also, make sure to explore our new interactive 2018 pheasant allocation map to view the more than 200 pheasant stocking locations across Pennsylvania. You might be surprised at how close some of these areas are to you.
