Two different scenarios

I got out into some hun country a couple of times since the last post and just like that the birds made me look like a fool. I posted not seeing many paired birds but on these two outings I saw nothing but paired huns. Seven pairs the first day and 8 on a windy day two along with one single. I guess the best you can take from my posts is what I see and not what I say.

There isn’t much to say but I have two different videos of the boys pointing huns that show the good and bad of dog work. The first video is the good. Anyway, it is all I expect from a dog.

As usual, the huns flushed as I was turning the camera towards Grady on point, but I got the birds flying all the same. Had I been walking with a gun and ready for a flush, there was plenty of opportunity for shots before Grady came into the picture.

On this second video, Grady’s actions prevented any kind of a safe shot. He very seldom breaks like this. As you can hear, it’s very windy. I don’t know if that has anything to do with him rushing the birds but I wasn’t happy. If I hadn’t been filming, I would have whoa’d him and made him stand there for a few minutes even though the birds were gone. For me, this is an instance when you don’t shoot even if there had been a safe shot. It might create a habit not wanted.

Just something to think about.

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.
