I was raised eating quail and lots of them. We hunted every day we could and put alot in the freezer every yr. We still eat quite a few . we buy them at Harveys 24 qty for about 25bucks when on sale and they are good. Always fried with just salt pepper flour and hot grease.

As mentioned earlier, plucked, rolled in flour
in a big cast iron skillet. Use the drippings to make milk gravy. Soft fried taters. Home made biscuits.

My grandma used to make them for my Grandpa and me for breakfast. Good stuff.

Here is a link to something I made a while back. I forget where I got the recipe but it turned out really good and it was easy to make.
