Quailtard: farm-raised quail released for the hunters to fire at. As in: “Look, the mere fact that we’re even talking about how the vice president drives up with his rich friends in cars to shoot farm-raised wingless quailtards is letting the quail know ‘how’ we’re hunting them” (Rob Corrdry, The Daily Show, 2/13/06).

    John,

    Has it actually been verified that this was indeed a “canned” hunt? If so, I find this to be the most reprehensible fact surrounding the whole affair. Sportsmen indeed!

    I’m not sure. I do remember that he took some flack in 2003 for taking part in a canned hunt in Pennsylvania.
