    They may be a tad bit on the chewy side if not rested for awhile, that's why so many folks who hunt and eat quail the same day do a stew type or quail and dumplins kinda thing, it help to keep them more tender, but I am in your corner and would still eat them any way I could LOL. Bon' appitete.
