The distinctive brown patch on the breast. 

That is the best  guess after they are dead and while generally true it is not always the case. Having raised several hundred huns in my years of game farming the dark brown horseshoe shape on the breast can be on both males and females (if you put what ends up being two males in the same cage you find out real quick  :bdid:). I used the patch on the chest as well as the amount of orange skin just behind the eye. But honestly I usually only tried to sex them in the early spring. The male call helped as well. Cool little birds for sure.

Congrats on the first Hun. Looks like a Cynergy, don't see too many of those around.

Thanks. You're right, Cynergy 28ga. Now I just need to bag a chukar, that's Washington's only upland bird I haven't shot yet

Spruce grouse yes, mountain quail no... forgot about that one, I guess I have two more to get. Do we have bobwhites in WA? Because that would make three  :chuckle:

From a couple of falls ago. I love to hunt grouse, but usually am training a dog for a test, or judging dogs in tests in September.

What kind of test do you judge Lee?

This is the only grouse I shot this year, spent most of the season chasing quail and pheasants.

Looking back on the season:

Looking forward to next year. The Fat Lady Sang yesterday.  Might just hunt some ducks this next weekend. Hope all had a good year!

I am pleased to say that Yanka passed her VJP in Boise, ID. this last weekend with a nice score. She is now in training for her next test this fall, the HZP. Force fetch is first and she is already reaching for the dummy when her ear is pinched.  NWGsp also passed with his male. 

The VJP is like the Navhda natural ability test and was what the Navhda test was derived from.

Thanks for the pics...enjoyed looking at them. You may have already said this but what breed are your dogs? They look like a wire haired Griffon but I am not sure...

Sad to report the area in which I  shot the huns that started this thread burnt to a total crisp. It was on ground bought for sharp tail restoration and in recent years I have seen a ton of sharpies there. Hard to say what fire does to them, but I won't be hunting there this fall. The fires in the Okanogan have been devastating to for lots of folks. It hasn't been fun trying to breathe here, but today it rained a little and cleared up. But then one of the areas blew up again.

Lee, we were up that way yesterday and man a LOT of good bird country has burned up to almost nothing. Finding good public ground up your way will not be as easy with all the fires. We did bump a decent covey of huns on our place, only the second time in 20+ years we have seen them on our place.

Good luck to you and your pups, I love your pictures each fall  :tup:.
