Living in Idaho brings many outdoor adventures and rewards. One of those is the abundance of wild game. Throughout the years family members have gathered together some great recipes for all types of wild game. The recipes below are for wild birds. If you like, check out other recipes for Elk, Venison, and Moose on my Wild Game (Elk, Venison, and Moose) Cooking Recipes here at hubpages.


The Chuckar Partridge is found in rocky arid portions of the western U.S. They are similar to Quail if you prefer to use in this recipe.

Roast in moderate oven, 350°, for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
