Welcome to The Reigning Chukar Champions

Just interested

Like most of you, I love chukar hunting. I am no better of a chukar hunter than anyone else and although I believe my dogs are the best chukar dogs out there (the reigning chukar champs), they are really no better than most other chukar dogs. I am by no means an expert on chukar…

Hard to quit

By now you know that next to family, dogs and chukars are a huge part of my life. This morning I started preparing for recovery days. I went to a spot I know holds Hungarian partridge and let the boys run as I walked the road. There was no gun. The boys didn’t let me…

2022 season finale

The chukar season came to an end for Jake, Grady and myself. Although there are five days left to be able to hunt, I chose the perfect day for an ending. It was a perfect blue bird day with a temperature of 46 degrees. Right now it is snowing outside and colder temperatures are returning…

Inevitable

Well, the chukar season is coming to a close. Although it’s been a very good season with good numbers of birds, it wasn’t one of my best years. I’m hoping to get one more hunt in the next few days and I’ll post to let you know how I feel the hunting season should have…

Throw the penalty flag

Anybody that has hunted chukars for very many years knows how frustrating the last month of the season can be. This year, with the abundance of birds, it seems like it’s even more frustrating than ever for me. If you watch much football you might see the yellow flag thrown for taunting. Well, if there…

Pay attention here

Back in 2010 I wrote a blog on conditioning for chukar hunters, as suggested by a reader. I was 59 years old and was able to cover the mountain pretty well. Since then, I have gone through a lot of surgeries and have not aged quite as gracefully as I hoped. A left knee replacement,…

Cabin fever

I read an article this morning about cabin fever. Of course, it was associated with the winter months and being stuck inside. The only time I get any hint of cabin fever is in the hot summer time. When it is too hot to get our and hike the hills. Luckily, there is always a…

You’re going to love this

I’ve been crying on everyone’s shoulder the last couple of months about my injuries. It’s been working because I’ve got several messages form chukar hunters wishing me the best. I have two issues, my back and my leg. The leg is obvious and the solutions are obvious also. The back is a much different issue.…

Bummed out dogs

Seems like Jake and Grady have become a little disgruntled with me lately. Evidently they are not too happy about the number of birds they are getting to mouth. They feel they have been doing their part, but there’s been a lot of slacking on my part. I have to admit to not keeping up…

Years past

One of those memories of the past showed up on Facebook today. Guess what I was doing on this date five years ago? Chukar hunting of course. Grady hadn’t been born yet, so it was just Jake and I. Here are the pictures I posted. I’m sure I was able to move on the mountain…
