I have a good pup that did great training on Chukars but now I need to get her on some wild birds.

Anyone willing to share information on some spots with me?

I live in Salt lake county so anywhere here, Tooele or Utah county should be pretty easy to get to.

Find sagebrush, junipers, cheat grass, big rocks and cliffs...and go up. Not trying to be smart, that's literally where they are...lots of them. More the further you get from SLC.

No chukar hunter with half a brain is going to give out spots online and if they do I doubt they are decent spots. Here is a video the chukar foundation president put out regarding chukar hunting for newbies:


Every single mountain west of I-15 that has cheet grass, is rocky, and isn't totally choked off by juniper trees will hold chukar. You just need to hike a whole bunch and you will find them. It's tough with a puppy but remember that the only thing that makes a good bird dog is lot's of wild birds. Good luck

Oh man, I remembered this post today and realized I forgot the most important part: do not EVER go chukar hunting alone. They're going to be in some serious ankle-breaking country.

Did not mean to put a like on there for your ankle (which looks painful). But the quote from old Benny is spot on.:mrgreen:

Went out and learned that they are evil little birds

Also was reminded of the fact I am a 41 year old ex-smoker who was raised at sea level...these mountains are hard work but I need hard work
