No doubt, thanks for posting this one it's been a long time since partridge. Back home we used to hunt them in the fall. They are an incredibly tasty bird although I think most of the time we would hunt the ruffed grouse Bonasa umbellus.

I have heard they are delicious, i was pretty hungry when we saw this one, just after completing the Mahoosuc Notch, the hardest 1 mile of the whole trail. Next time.
