late July quail babies

It’s still not the news we’re looking for but once again, why wouldn’t those chukars and huns be having the same success. Our drive and walk found several covey’s of very small quail and a few covey’s of larger babies that flew faster than I could get the camera up. We also had a covey of huns fly from the side of the road but I couldn’t detect whether they were all adults or some early hatchers. There were about 10 birds. Also while walking in the thicker timber country, we bumped 3 different ruffs. The sad thing on them was the number of chicks that fled with them. Two hens had one half grown chick each and the other had two half grown chicks.

We’ll be out again soon.

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.
