Great pictures Lee, even one with a gun. Does that mean the  dogs do not do all the work on every trip  :chuckle:.

Yeah, I shoot a few. I just realized that the gun in the picture is not mine, but a friends. Mine has a few dings and the stock is glued back together just behind the trigger guard. I had it fly out of my hand and end up at the bottom of a 20 foot cliff.  It still shoots...

Nice birds gentlemen, that's the first time I've seen a Hun up next to a Chukar.  They are a teeny bit smaller.  How about the taste difference between the two?  I've heard that Huns are quite good eating.  Looking forward to getting one of those little buggers next time out.

Keep at it guys!

I love hunting huns.  They are a bit easier to bring down than chukars, and they do have the bad habit of staying put where they land after they are flushed.  Not too difficult if you pay attention.  Like chukars, if they fly around a ridge, they'll be around the corner on the other side about the same elevation.

Huns are one of the few uplands other than the quail that is doing well in the north central part of the state. At least from my observations they are doing well here.

Not so  well in the mouth of this fellow.  Dinner last night was two huns.. This was a  cripple that he caught. I went to take a picture of Gage pointing the  cripple and it had enough steam to try to  fly another 15 feet, but with Gage on its heels,  this was the result.

I am sure there are 100 posts about the guns you guys are using, just wanted to ask 101. What are you Hun and Chukar hunters packing? I got a BPS 12. Heavy, but it shoots straight enough.
Well, I didn't drive 13 hours just to shoot once!

Nothing the matter with your BPS; I have one in 16Ga. that I occasionally pack. I love the 16Ga.; so I normally pack a DeHaan SXS or one of two Remington pumps in that gauge. However, my last Huns were taken with a Weatherby semi-auto in 28 Ga.; light and deadly with 3/4OZ. of #6's.

LOL, it's actually the Beretta X-tra wood you get on the 391 Teknys.  If you peel off the finish it is a plain piece of wood!  I am good friends with the owner of Pacific Sporting Arms and bought this the day it came in because it was light!  Redmond eh, my offices are by willows run...
