Only been out three times for chukar and shunked all three times. Time to find some new spots. There are a lot of chukar hunters now. Just have to drive farther i guess.

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.

Huh, last year our chukar count was 152. Iíd be surprised if we clear 50 this year.

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.
