2021 season

Every year I make a short video of my season with a few observations. I do it more for me and just creating memories. It’s 10 minutes long and may not interest most of you so I understand not watching. But my summary for 2021 is this. The bird numbers were good. The dog work was very good and I got the boys out 62 times this year. All locations had good number of birds. If I don’t count January, I had my best shooting season ever. January had a lot of snow and was very cold and got me to thinking about warmer climate in the future when the weather is like that. A few more aches and pains than in the past but not any less enjoyment.

Keep in touch with me and I’ll be letting you know what I find this Spring and Summer. This will be the first time I have posted one of my post season video’s. I just hope it shows the wonderful year that I had.

Thanks for all the interaction this year and keep having fun with those pups.

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. Very impressive pictures of great dogs, pretty country and so many Chukar!! 62 times hunting is amazing. You are a tough mountain man for sure. Inspiring for me! Obviously a great shot as well. Thanks for sharing your season with us. Hope you have a good offseason!

  2. It helps when you live within 120 miles of all of these locations and have access year round. Barb and I will be doing a lot more camping next year on my hunts so I hope we can get together.


  3. I really enjoy your posts. Thanks for the positive outlook and joy you have for this sport. I am located in Southern California and mostly only chase Valley Quail down here. But almost every year I make it up by you to chase those Chukar for a few days, which are one of my favorites. Your posts let me be up there all year!! Thanks again.



  4. Larry. Thank you for all your posts. You are an inspiration for us older guys that love this sport and our bird dogs.Idaho is on my bucket list for next season. Keep up your great posts and above all have a wonderful off season.


  5. Great season and photo’s, I got out 50 times here in nevada and thought that was a lot, mixed season down here but had lots of great hunts, looking forward to next season but getting out tomorrow for one last hunt

  6. I didn’t do a video, but I did do a long post, as I try to at the conclusion of each year. Mine is here:


    I enjoyed this blog all year long, and I’m envious of your chukar success.

    By the way, I think the other blog I had mentioned was this one:


    It was a lot more active, however, when I mentioned it as the author was living in Idaho, which he no longer does.
