Found ’em, sort of

After five outings this season, I finally found some of the elusive alectoris chukar. I went to yet another new (to me) spot, and was delighted to see plenty of birds. I was not delighted, though, that they saw me well before I saw them and showed themselves to me by launching over 100 yards away from me and Angus.

Angus and I worked hard, but the birds spotted us too soon each time, and I missed the few long shots I got. Still, they’re there, doing their best with what they’ve got.

And it was the first gorgeous day I’ve hunted this year. I’m hoping for a few more of those. So is Angus.

  1. What an amazing spot! Nice dog too. Let me know what you think of the Badlands Vest after you have had a chance to try it out. I was out chasing Sharp-tailed Grouse all weekend in South East Alberta.
