I am finally making the switch to muzzle-loader hunting this year so I am faced with a new dilemma: what to do with myself during October? October is such a beautiful time of year to be outdoors and it has a special place in my heart forever associated with hunting so I need to find something to replace the rifle hunts. I know it is not a good time to be chasing grouse with all the rifle hunters in the mountains, but what about chukar? My sense is that there would be fewer rifle hunters in the areas where chukar are commonly found, especially during the elk hunt since elk and chukar do not typically like the same type of habitat. And I could be wrong but it seems like most deer and elk hunting in this state takes place east of I-15 so I should not see as many hunters if I go west of I-15 to chase the devil birds, right? I will still wear plenty of orange to be safe though. :?
