S1-E03: Hells Canyon Chukar Hunting with Morgan Mason and Danielle Prewett

MeatEater’s Associate Editor Morgan Mason heads to Hells Canyon, Idaho for a chukar hunt with Danielle Prewett of Wild & Whole. Morgan’s wirehaired pointing griffon, Pinion, leads the chase as they search for these “red-legged devil birds." Aching feet, sore knees, and missed shots are all part of what many consider to be the hardest hunt in the upland world. At the end of the day, all of that work makes Danielle’s spatchcock chukar with Brussels sprouts even more delicious, and that ain’t easy.
