"Nevada Chukar Survey"

The survey is out and sites slightly to moderately lower numbers this year. They do say that due to the abundance of water this year, birds may be more spread out than usual resulting in lower birds numbers sighted.

I'm optimistic. Wet winters/springs usually result in better hatches, or higher survival rates in my experience. Heavy snow in January may have resulted in winter mortality.

We'll see soon enough. I'm gonna be in the desert next weekend for 4 days, get a hunt or 2 in the middle of the week and hunt the Kali opener. After that, I should be able to make an accurate determination of this year' s numbers.

I did 'my own' chukar survey while I was out scouting and hunting for antelope. There were lots of chukars and quail around. Pretty much much everywhere there was a spring or guzzler, there were birds. Lots of them.

For you guys who have looked at the buffalo numbers and thought that was a good spot. Please beware that those numbers were before a fire burned most of that area all the way up to mixie. A lot of guys I've ran into up there, were bummed out when they drove all the way up there and most of the area has got less vegetation than mars.

I hunted the south edge of that fire and got into a butt load of birds but with no cover, it was tough.

Called 2 of these outta that burn.

Once winter hits and there is snow on the ground those birds should be in trouble.

Until then,!i hope to terrorize the yotes.
