Take first aid for your dog's. Exspect major pad issues. And don't think you can just carry your dog out. Water bring 40 Oz just for the dog.

 Exspect to walk 10 to 15 miles or how every long your dog last.

Be extremely careful with your dog around cliffs. It it like to chase Birds chukar's have lead a few off cliffs. Take a leash.b

Tagging along, this one and few others have everyone's attention, maybe it's the moon.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

You got a contract?  After you signed did you get a paycheck?  I haven't received a contract or paycheck?

Me and my uncles use to do a lot of chukar hunting. Killed a lot of birds. I would not even think about sending someone and there dog into that god forbidden country. Maybe try grouse hunting? :hello:
Slap some bacon on a biscut and lets go, were burrnin daylight!

Most peoples health is a decision not a condition?

Nemo,

I may have written this on this board before. I shot my first chukar in November of 1974. I was all of 22 years old. It was one of the finest things I ever did; as I have had more fun chasing them since then. I have worn out countless pairs of boots and hunted with some very fine dogs. It has been nothing but sheer joy to hunt them. I love the desolate country they live in and the solitude I find while chasing them. In short that first bird turned me into an addict. Good luck and take care. My goal is to be chasing them long into the next two decades. Lee

Hey thanks Lee. I'm really looking forward to the weekend wth my dad and my dogs. I'm not setting any expectations- I have heard legends of how hard these birds are to hit even if I find them. Omak is a really pretty area, too. My girlfriend's family is there so we've spent a lot of time out that way but I haven't had the pleasure of hunting the area myself. Thanks for the words and happy hunting.

I run into chukars every year while hunting deer. I've seen them many times while quail & pheasant hunting. My main problem is not having the time to hunt them. The more time spent hunting in general , the more one starts figuring out where certain species tend to be, and learning about different parts of the state. Good luck. I'm hoping to get out there myself this year .
