Love the Lemon and white pointer. Had one that looked very much like it, probably my dog of a lifetime. Yours must be must stronger than she looks if she requires that gig of a chain to hold her. :D

Muley rifle hunt is going on so were giving it a rest.

I ferkinear go nutz this weekend

Although the hounds could use the break as their undercarriage is scarred up from mountainous deadfall that comes with chasing Blu Grouse.

I've been out after Chuks only a few times thus far but we are not finding much in the usual productive areas.

Weve been here before, so it's time too sharpen the dart, pull out the map and let'er fly

I’m guessing this thread is slow due to warm weather. I personally don’t like worrying about rattlesnakes. Not so much worrying about a personal encounter more worried about my dogs stumbling onto the nasty bastards. I’ve seen them out in good weather as cool as 50 degrees. What’s your experience with rattlers?

Are Huns only found near wheat?   How often are dog boots needed?  I saw them in one picture.   That country sure looks different than Michigan.

Huns can be anywhere. Near the fields in the flat or way up on top where the chukar are. They are really cool litttlw birds when they flush I about pee my pants every time. Fastest game bird going. Sometimes the run like the dickens and sometimes they hold like glue and fly right up your pant leg.

Cosign this. I find them everywhere but best luck in the same areas as ag lands but not necessarily adjacent. Usually on hillsides or on the tops. Sometimes hanging out with cows. 

 

They will either bust wild 30 yards out or hold so tight you doubt your dog’s point then they jump up scaring the shit out of you. 

 

I moved 7 coveys in the past two days with a total of maybe 65-70 birds most over points except for a few wild flushes. Every single flush scared the hell out of me, ended up flock shooting and missing everything.

Yep I flock shoot on Huns  worse than any other bird. That weird screeching sound they make when they flush doesn’t help. Plus the all at once flush at least Chukar start popping like pop corn so your ready for the next bird.

 

I find them close too cows to especially when the snow gets deep. They’ll eat the seeds right out of their crap.

I have shot Huns hanging out in big sage flats with Sage Hen, creek bottoms with quail and higher on the mountain than Chukar in Nevada and alongside sharptails and pheasant in South Dakota. They do get up and go quick and never leave a bird behind.
