A previous column covered some of the problems quail face, and noted how populations of this saucy little patrician have plummeted. Things are so bad that simply hearing a mating whistle in the spring, or flushing a wild covey in the winter, is reason to celebrate.

Properly preparing venison treats for prime eats

It’s that wonderful time of the year when the whitetail rut is at hand. Many hunters already have venison in the freezer and tasty stews, soups, roasts, and countless other delights featuring deer meat are in the offing. Properly handled and prepared, venison is a wonderful and wonderfully healthy meat.
