This past weekend treated us well on Chuckar. Five birds taken between two hunters, no dogs. Plenty of birds but they are taking flight at some distance now. Gotta sneak up on them.

My usuals are doing very well. Some of the new spots I have hunted have been great as well. Over all the populations are thriving and birds seem to be doing well.  I have seen fewer huns this year in the elevations, but the coveys we are getting into are dense and the birds are eating well.

The kid I have mentored in the past and passed down the local chukar notebook to is doing real well this year.

From what he's been telling me, numbers are a bit down.
Those of you that know me can send a text or message on Instagram anytime. Politics may not make me want to be a part of Hunt Wa in 2020.
