Just got back from another chukar hunt and had a neat email to look at. So instead of boring you with my complaining about how hard it is to get up the mountain, I’ve got a cool story from Brian and Terri Kondeff. I hope I don’t screw it up.
By the looks of the picture, they found some pretty good looking chukar country and it wasn’t long before their setter, Sophia, locked on a covey and was backed by their DD, Gus.
Evidently, being a better shot than me, two birds were dropped. The big boy Gus was soon on chase and caught up to a bird down the hill a ways. As he was bringing the bird back he noticed the other cripple and decided to impress his masters with a super retrieve.
I’ve had several times when my dog would drop a bird and pick up number two and than drop number two to pick up number one and finally give up and bring me just one and than go retrieve the other but never smart enough to save steps and get them both with one scoop. What a great picture and story.
While I’m showing pictures, here’s Brett Wood out of Utah’s good looking GWP’s.
Thanks for the story and pictures guys.
