Snow and the birds revisited

I was out early yesterday and found this covey of 7 Hungarian partridge huddled by this rock. I’m assuming that the rock might have had some heat from the sunshine the day before. The temperature was 16 degrees and it’s obvious by the shaking that I wasn’t as comfortable as the birds were. Still it is clear to see how they roost in a tight group and use their feathers to keep warm. I’m still learning to use my camera so I don’t know what I did wrong as the birds walked up the hill but it’s kind of cool looking at their color.

Hunting has been a favorite past time for me for 55 years but the last twenty five years I have been consumed by chukar hunting and more specifically chukar hunting with fantastic dogs. In this blog I hope to pass on any information I can about chukar hunting but more than anything I want to showcase what will probably be my last two chukar dogs, Jake and Grady. I am 70 years old, Jake is 8 and Grady is 3 and I'm hoping to stay on the chukar mountain until I am 80 when Grady will be fetching my final chukars.

  1. We got some of those Montana snow storms that put 17 inches of snow on the flats and more up higher. The good thing is that we didn’t have the Montana cold. The southern steep slopes are already bare in places. As you mentioned, the avian predators are hanging close to those areas also.
