Well, I lost my camera on top of one of these chukar mountains so I've only got a few from the other guys who were there but here they are...

Here's a pair of roosters that were hiding in the ditches along this farm road.

Here's Allan with Jenny the wonder dog and a nice rooster that she pointed and retreived.

These chukar came off the top of the hill in the background.  My camera with a bunch of other good pics is up there somewhere...

More chukar with Mark, the friend that we visited in ID.

And finally, the infamous banded pheasant .

Sorry, no pics of any of the grouse, quail or coyote.  They're all in that camera on top of the mountain somewhere.  One of the other guys still needs to get some film developed so there might be a few more on their way.

Already dreaming about next year's trip back to Idaho.

Looks like it was a great trip. Except for loosing your camera. I'd be available to help you look for the camera also. :smile-big-blue:

Looks like you had a great trip. I think next year I may look into something along that line. Looks like a better deal than what CA has to offer for not much more money.

This was Jenny's second year hunting.  Last year she had a pretty tough go at it.  This year her stock went way up.  She pointed a group of chukar that we would have walked right past.  She also found countless quail that we dropped in some really thick stuff that there was little chance that we would have found on our own (not one lost bird) and she made a great point on another pheasant that we would have walked past too.

I was planning on getting a lab next year but this might change my mind.  Any comments on a lab vs. a dog like this when 90% of my bird hunting is SoCal quail or ducks?

 It is a known fact in the pointing dog world that setter bitches mature late but once they do they are great dogs.  If I wanted a pointing breed but wanted to hunt a lot of ducks I would get a wirehair german shorthair.

I think its what you like. Do you want that surprise of a flush of the time to walk up to a point. The few times that I have hunted wild birds behind pointers was that alot of times these wild birds don't hold. They usually flush. For me there's nothing like a well trained lab.
