Citrus Rosemary Roast Pheasant

Have you ever tried Pheasant? Lately we have been enjoying it pretty often & I am grateful for that!

This recipe is simple & brings out the delicate flavors of this stunning bird. What could be better than a butter rub with citrus & rosemary?

Not only did I acquire some fine Pheasant on a recent hunting trip ~ I was also sent a lovely surprise from MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc.

Pheasants are stunning game birds. The males being especially beautiful, adorned with bright colors and markings.

The bird on the top is a pheasant ~ look at those vibrant colors! The guy on the bottom is a Chukar Partridge.
