To hunt ... here in Central KS, pheasant is good hunting & what we find most often. Have to travel further for quail, but those are wonderful fun too.
We've hunted chukar in northern NV--our friends there say the first time it's for fun, after that it's for revenge!!
I have to say that chukar is absolutely my favorite to cook & eat--it beats everything hands down! Chukar tetrazini, OMG, talk about delicious!
Overall, the chukar is my favorite game bird -- non native here in KS, so I try to raise some every year to have on hand for training (and eating.)
