I’m starting to hear more good news. One guy reports of double hatch and lot’s of birds. Somehow I forgot the name of the place he mentioned. Another fisherman told me about good numbers along the reservoir. He also didn’t mention which body of water.
My report is pretty positive also. The boys and I took a drive up high, away from the water and were surprised with three covey busts on our short hike. All three covey’s had about 10 birds in them and the young were somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks. Several of the trails had chukar tracks on them but I realized I have hardly seen a chukar turd this year. Maybe they are courteous birds and step off the trail to relieve themselves. I also saw two covey of chukar off the road. One very photogenic and the other very non social. Both covey’s had about the same numbers and looked to be the same age. I’m guessing born around the first of July.
It’s not that 180 birds per square mile but it’s a good start. Just think, only a month away.
