  1. It’s a bit presumptive considering your dogs to be the ‘best on the mountain’, no? Senor, I was glad to see that you finally pulled the plug on your horrid old site but not so glad to see that you’re back at in with a new one.

    Give’er up, Dude! Nobody wants to read your crappy, ‘look at me’ attention whore blog

  2. No presumption here Thom. To me these two dogs are the “best on the mountain”. Obviously it looks like you must feel your dogs are better, which is how it should be. Glad to have you aboard reading about my boys.

  3. Larry, it’s a widely spread rumor that you shoot more non pointed birds vs ones that are properly pointed and held by your dogs? Is this correct?

  4. Wynn, it looks to be the day to beat on Larry. I sometimes do shoot birds not pointed by the dogs but not often. You should be able to tell by the amount of pictures and videos that killing birds is not my main objective. I sometimes shoot a bird that flushes for no reason. The dogs still love the retrieve. If the dogs break and flush the birds I don’t shoot. The dogs point and I flush and then shoot. That’s how I’d say 95 % of my birds are shot. And no I don’t train my dogs to stop to flush or put the bird in my hand.
    Thanks for the comment and chance to dismiss this rumor.

    1. If you have the greatest “reigning chukar champions” on the mountain, we’d assume that your dogs do all of the pointing. If you’re going to resort to shooting non pointed birds then, GET A FLUSHER and don’t try to tell us about your “CHAMPION” pointing dogs!

  5. Wow, to think of the self riotous egos that are leaving comments about how others hunt is absurd and not supportive of fellow sportsman. It is critical that all ethical sportsman find the value in creating a platform that we are united rather than divided for the good of our sport. I have seen and heard it all, but our differences should not create animosity or judgement, but an understanding that we all do it a little different, but within the contexts of the law, respect of game, and the preservation of our lands. My recommendations……Get out there and enjoy what we have while your age will let you, let the dogs do what they were bred to do, and find the peace that we all enjoy in the great outdoors. Its kind of like dog training, there are all different types of methods, everyone thinks theirs is the best, but the true measure is the end result of a solid working companion. Larry, I know you as a upstanding human being in the community and the field, and I know you have fantastic hunting companions that are fortunate to have you as the pack leader.

    1. Thank you for the compliment. Also thank you for pointing out what hunting is supposed to be about. There seems to be a culture out there these days that would rather tear good things down rather than just get out and enjoy.

      1. Yeah, I just approach things as we need to be in this together. Time is too short to get stuck on petty things. Besides the “Chukar Champion Dog” is not embellishing that mine is better than yours. It is mine is the best for me and that is good enough! I fricken’ love watching my dog and my friends dogs, which are an assortment of breeds, hunt and they all have their strengths and weaknesses, but who cares I out in the mountains away from all the chaos loving life. I for one enjoy your blog, other bird/dog hunting blogs, and chukar or upland bird podcasts because it provides unity into what we all have in common.

    2. Hey Erik, BIOYA (blow it out your ass). If we wanted your opinion, we’d give it to ya.

      Larry, I’ve been lurking your blog for years and it looks like the same group of hecklers has followed you here to this site, especially that Thom/Quill fellow.

      1. Steve, I think you took my comment out of context so I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt. Larry is right about the culture and you just confirmed that. My points were directed towards the other keyboard warriors. I’ll always back my long time friend Larry. So in short, lurk elsewhere.

  6. Radney. I assume that you didn’t read my response to Wynn. Let me reiterate, at least 95% of the birds I shoot are off pointed dogs. But why would that matter? Are you saying that flushing dogs aren’t good enough to be the reigning chukar champions? Even this time of the year I’m out three or four times a week letting my boys show me why I call them my champions

  9. Very glad to see your new site. Love the scouting reports, along with the updates of your hunts and the love for your dogs. Any chukar hunter worth their salt believes their dogs are the champs and anyone who takes offense to that doesn’t understand what it means to be a chukar hunter.
