Welcome to The Reigning Chukar Champions
I woke up this morning to a few claps of thunder and than this rain shortly afterwards. It only lasted about five minutes but was a great surprise. So I quickly loaded up the boys and headed for the nearest chukar mountain I could find. Shortly after we started up the draw we were onceContinue reading “Upwards again”
Before I tell you what I found yesterday, I would like to show a video I took two days ago while on a scouting trip. The boys and I found these bears in a draw we were heading up. Mama had us pegged but didn’t seem to worried. I tried to move in a littleContinue reading “7/26 a better day”
It’s still not the news we’re looking for but once again, why wouldn’t those chukars and huns be having the same success. Our drive and walk found several covey’s of very small quail and a few covey’s of larger babies that flew faster than I could get the camera up. We also had a coveyContinue reading “late July quail babies”
I got up early this morning to a 58 degree temperature. Wanting to take advantage of the coolest morning we’ve had for a while, I headed to the mountain hoping to find some chukars. The good news is that I found some. Things weren’t quite as good as I hoped. The higher up the hillContinue reading “A little longer walk”
To start off with, another chukar hunter passed on some information about chukars. They haven’t been seeing or hearing any chukars at one of the popular lakes to hunt chukars. He said he they didn’t get off the road but that was his report. I’m still not at that negative point. Take the last twoContinue reading “Go figure”
Me and the boys were going to take advantage of a little cooler weather this morning by taking a short hike on the chukar mountain. But I had a brain fart and forgot to pack the water bottles and where we were heading was too dry to let the dogs go far. So instead, weContinue reading “Mixed results”
Took another ride and short hike this morning hoping to find some positive news on chukars. I found some but don’t know how to interpret it. It was yet a different place than I have been this summer. Like most places, the roads heading for chukar spots, usually have quail on them. I was shockedContinue reading “Still searching”
As I mentioned before, I’m lost right now. Can’t sit at home and can’t walk the chukar mountains. So me and the boys took an early drive and walk on some of the low lands leading to some of our chukar spots. It was an entertaining drive and at one time I thought Grady wasContinue reading “Still warm but still good news for some upland birds”
Even with the heat still beating down on us, I’m finding the best place to be to keep my mind right is still on the mountain. Most of the time is just driving back roads but Jake, Grady and I get a little taste of what we love with short jaunts. The good news fromContinue reading “Some better news”
Only an idiot would be out hiking in this weather and this idiot took a short walk today to see what was out there. It was already 100 degrees at 10:30 when I started my hike. The only smart thing I did was to stay close to a creek for the dogs. As I mentionedContinue reading “A summer to remember”
