Was pretty windy in most of the spots we hit today, but my 7 month old pup got his first retrieve on a hun today! It was awesome to hunt with him for the first time.

 These guys did 20 miles and found a few in 30-40mph wind, called it a day at 10 due to heat.

Plenty of Chukar and Huns today!  Dog averaged  just over a covey per hour. Large coveys too.

I went out this afternoon with my labs, yellow is 1 year old and he did great! The black is his mom, and she is sure something to watch! We limited out in no time, and they even put a nice rooster up in front of me that I had to watch fly off. They looked at me in confusion lol.

The wife and I hunted the Swanson Lakes WA on Sunday. I love the Big Sky/Empty feel of the area and try to get up there several times a season. No Huns or quail seen or shot, but I guess at 65; I don't go hunting just for birds anymore. We did hear a couple of shots and for that area saw more vehicles pulled off than usual.

Unfortunately, my Springer got into the nasty burrs. However, Tanglefree Hair & Mane  spray is a WONDER and with it; the burrs came right out and a pre-walk/hunt spraying works even better at burr prevention.

Bad news... At 8 years of age, Walter The Wonder Dog tires rather easily these days. I see more short, local hunts in the future.

18 chukars and two huns for my friends and I today. Not too bad for not having a dog. Can't wait to get a GSP!

Just as a heads up, saw a ton of snakes yesterday.

Looks like some great hunting and looks like lots of real estate is being cover which is always good to take a couple of birds from multiple coveys.

Hopefully the rain stays out so I can hit "the hole" tomorrow. Doesn't look that way though.

Merkle, only snake I seen here has been a bull snake.
Leave No Trace!

Did you draw a tag and need help?

White Pass Outfitters and Chinook Pass Outfitters are the only two outfitters with special use permits in the 346-364 area. Give them a call and see if they suite your needs.

I am no longer giving out information for free.
