Homemade Italian Stuffed Ringneck Pheasant or Chicken

Oklahoma Pheasent Hunt 2017

Ringneck Pheasant is one of the most sought after game birds in the united states due to their excellent table fare.  On a recent trip to Kansas to hunt ducks we managed to harvest a handful of Ringneck Pheasants along with multiple species of waterfowl included to load up the meat freezer.

These being my first wild pheasants i decided to whip up a Homemade Italian Marinade. I would like to share it with you guys. 

Ringneck Pheasant Ingredients:

  • 2 Roosters
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 1 Vidalia onion
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 lemons
  • Italian Seasoning- oregano, thyme

Pre-cooked Pheasant with all the spices.

Preparing Italian Stuffed Ringneck Pheasant:

  • Cut the birds head, wings, and feet off first,  Then remove all the skin and guts.  Wash bird off and soak in milk for 1 day.  Make sure all the shot is out.  make your marinade by mixing the olive oil, Italian seasoning, wine, salt and pepper, and lemon juice from only 2 of the lemons.
  • Marinate the birds for 12-24 hours.
  • Remove birds, stuff with bacon strips, onion and half a lemon each.  
  • Wrap the entire bird in bacon (optional but good for holding in flavor).
  • Pheasant- Grill or bake at 400 for 45 mins or until inside temp reaches 160
  • Chicken- 400 for 1 hr or until inside temp reaches 165

After this finishes cooking you are ready to serve! It pairs nicely with some wild rice and asparagus. This dish is guaranteed to get your guest to ask you for your pheasant recipes.
