Quail are good. You just cut out the breast and saute it, or other methods.

You have to be careful hunting quail. You'll remember Dick Cheney's mishap doing same. When quail coveys break out of cover, such as sagebrush, they do so explosively, and the fly just above the brush. Thus, shots are straight out, not up. You have to know where everybody is, and it is best to only have two hunters in a group, so the field of fire can be easily divided.
