Last month, we traded our boat hooks and waders for waxed canvas and double barrels. Like oystering, upland bird hunting is a cherished southern tradition. We met with some of our dear friends and headed for the lush foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Together, we went afield, chasing chukar and quail at Orapax Hunting Preserve. After a long day and with sore shoulders, we sat down to enjoy an amazing meal prepared by our friend Chef Jack Canter, made from our day’s harvest and of course, White Stone Oysters.
