    Default Late Season Chukar, Lucerne Valley.

    Went out looking around a few days ago for some late season birds. Acting on a tip from a friend of mine, I gave a new area a try. Less than 5 mins into my uphill hike, 2 birds flushed and I was lucky to get one. This was my first season Chukar hunting. I saw lots of birds this season but only got a few. Still have lots to learn, but can't wait for next season!

    Lessons about chukar hunting:

    1. If you have the time to get up to the birds, you're lucky
    2. If you find the birds, slightly more lucky.
    3. If you can get up to the birds, you're just a little bit luckier.
    4. If you can see a bird flying away from you, you're still pretty lucky.
    5. If you flush the bird, but don't have a shot, consider yourself damn lucky.
    6. If you flush the bird, have a shot, but miss, pat yourself on the back.
    7. If you flush the bird, have a shot, wing the bird, but don't retrieve it, you're an a*shole, but still freakin' lucky.
    8. Let's say you flush the bird, shoot it, and you eat sh*t scrambling to retrive it, you're awesome. kiss your booboo and be happy- you earned it!
    9. You shoot the bird, retrieve it, and continue on unscathed, you're the man/woman.
    10. You shoot one bird, and continue shooting birds until you limit, you're done. just stop. leave. go away before i build an idol in awe of your amazingness.

    Congrats on the birdie!

    Damn. I was close. My beretta looks just like it. Couldn't see the engravings. Was just going off design.

    @ Sean: Buddy, you're at #10 after your jawbone excursion. So please excuse me while I get back to chiseling your likeness into this marble block in my mausoleum to sean english.
    On a side note: good luck! try that first spot i sent you! the place of the road that we went together was harder hunting than it was worthwhile. Listen for them, then hunt them.

    Hookup, nice pic, that bird looks pretty fat! I cringed when I saw your nice O/U laying on the rock, though.

    I shoot a 686 Onyx 12 ga. & a 686 White Onyx 20 ga., but that has nothing to do with it. Does your Beretta have a trap door on the botton of the receiver & a round knob on the stock? Just curious. Never seen one with that. Also, the Browning shown doesn't have a Schnabel forend or exposed hinge pins on the sides of the reciever like yours does if the one in your avatar is the one you are talking about.

    No it doesn't, but nor am i familiar with every beretta ever made. Nor browning for that matter. I have bigger fish to fry (and chukar for that matter).
