    The latter is self explanatory as a hunting reference and the first refers to the personality of the bird if you will. A bird with and extraordinarily strong will and deep sense of territory is said to be "game". The phasing is an accepted idiom to mean unafraid. Wikipedia has a simple definition as any breed of fowl including turkey used for fighting.

    a bird of any of various strains of domestic fowls developed originally chiefly for the production of fighting cocks, modern game, old english game. ( before the laws were changed to make it elegal to fight them) now we are breeding them to keep their bloodlines pure all while being able to admire some of the finest gamefowl on the planet[​IMG]
