With the holiday season upon us and colder temperatures becoming a regular occurrence here in Pennsylvania, it’s the perfect time to get afield for some small game hunting. Species like rabbits, pheasants, squirrels and quail are all in season now through Dec. 24, then reopen Dec. 26-Feb. 28. This is a great time of year to reconnect with family and friends, and hopefully you’ll have a chance to go hunting with someone special this holiday season.
If you happen to be planning a group rabbit hunt, and are looking for a great, wintry recipe to share with family and friends, consider this one: North Country Rabbit Stew with Dumplings. “This recipe is based upon classical preparation methods for rabbits and hares in northern England,” said Ethan Barton of Barbours, PA, who submitted this recipe to the Second Edition of the Pennsylvania Game Commission Cookbook.
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 regular posts include delicious, easy and seasonal wild game recipes from the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Game Cookbook that you and your family can prepare. Enjoy!
