No pity for the dogs

Okay. Where there is a will there is a way. I’ve heard that said before and the dogs forced me to give it a whirl. My truck can get me to the hill and some walking sticks help me keep from falling and hurting myself. That’s all the dogs cared about.

So we gave it a go without a pack or gun. Just a camera. Surprising, the dogs could care less. I made it about 1/4 mile up and then turned back. As you can see, the dogs were having a ball and, at one point, I was sure Grady had hit scent. After both dogs were gone for a couple of minutes I started cussing myself for not putting their collars on.

But it wasn’t long before up on the hill I could see what the boys were scenting. The biggest darn chukars we have ever seen. I’d say about 16 to 18 pounds. 30 seconds after they flew off Jake and Grady showed up looking at me like they had hit the honey hole.

Better than sitting on the couch.

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. Nice that they had something to get excited about! Mine have been inside for two days while I’ve been trying to plow snow. Hard to keep up with it this year! Probably have 3’ on the level. I’ve been home 3 days and ready to head south!!
