Forgotten Game Bird

Record #:
Four rail species live in the state - the clapper, king, Virginia, and sora. Rails are often called marsh hens because of their salt marsh habitats and chicken like build. Hunting rails goes back to the 1800s; they are a hard quarry to seek and find and attract only the hardiest of hunters. Lawrence describes where and how this bird is hunted.
