Impress family and friends with this pheasant recipe. It’s easy enough that anyone can do it, but it will look like it was done by a professional chef. Travis Frank, a good friend of Walton’s Inc, shared it with us. You may know Travis from the popular hunting TV show The Flush!  The combination of the cream cheese and bacon will make even the most hesitant eater a wild game fanatic!
