Good Birds and High Hopes

Chukar habitat is in good shape

We rambled in chukar country last weekend, looking for grouse with the gun. Didn’t see any, but found plenty of chukar. We found partridges along rivers and reservoirs, in large (30+) coveys. A much better outlook than last September. To say the least.

Angus is ready (perhaps too ready; he chased down and retrieved a chukar, to my horrified delight). So am I. So is the boat. We’re hoping to see a lot of new country this year courtesy of that vessel, places we couldn’t access previously without great travail and even more time.
