Record #:
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. Wooten describes rail hunting on the Outer Banks and includes several recipes for preparing them for the table.
