Nation’s Premier Wild Game Author Debuts New Hardcover about Upland Birds and Small Game at 2018 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic

Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever has formed a new partnership with Hank Shaw, one of the nation’s leading wild game chefs and author of the upcoming book, Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail: Upland Birds and Small Game from Field to Feast. A portion of the proceeds from every book sold will support grassland conservation efforts of “The Habitat Organization” on a national scale.  
Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail, is a hardcover, full-color, lushly photographed cookbook paying homage to the upland game species of America, which offer unmatched flavor and culinary potential to the country’s 11.5 million hunters who make the annual pilgrimage to our fields and woods each autumn. Whether you’re a cook who fears the fowl or perhaps considered a top-notch pro by friends and family, this upcoming guide – endorsed by Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever – offers tasteful recipes and sound guidance from field to fork, while at the same time supporting habitat improvements throughout the country.
“Not only am I proud to help contribute to an organization that can turn ninety cents on the dollar into habitat for the birds I write about in this book,” explains Shaw, “but I also have a special connection to Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever.  I’ve spoken at National Pheasant Fest and Quail Classic events since 2012 and count many members and employees as my friends. This is a perfect partnership, and this book represents the full circle, from habitat to hunt to fork.” 

A former restaurant cook who later spent 18 years as a political reporter, Shaw can now be found on his James Beard award-winning blog, Hunter Angler Gardener Cook. Shaw has authored multiple books on wild game cooking: “Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast," "Duck, Duck, Goose," which covers waterfowl cooking, and his latest book, “Buck, Buck, Moose,” which covers all things venison. He has also been published in Food & Wine, Petersen’s Hunting, Organic Gardening, Outside Magazine, Field and Stream, and Pheasants Forever’s Journal of Upland Conservation. Shaw has been featured on “Bizarre Foods America” with Andrew Zimmern, “Meateater” with Steve Rinella, “The Sporting Chef” with Scott Leysath, and "Somebody's Gotta Do It" with Mike Rowe. Shaw is a Life Member of Quail Forever whose exclusive upland recipes will be featured in the Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever Journals.
