Two bird hunting friends talk wild chukars and quail, public access, serendipity, and fire pits
Same place, same opening weekend and we didn't even hunt together. It still may have been the best opener ever, in large part for reasons other than bird numbers. My friend Tom Jenkins joins me to debrief our separate-but-equally cool chukar openers where camaraderie, family, friends, and brutal heat all contributed to a unique hunting experience.
Learn what we learned about coping with summer-like conditions - dog care, bird behavior and personal um, hydration. How serendipity is often what makes a hunting trip memorable, some of our tactics and strategies for wild birds, including valley quail.
The Road Trip hits some starting points for public access ruffed grouse in the Northeast, and we look at your photos of opening weekend - outstanding!
