Karolynn, Jim and Chipper Chukar Hunt

Karolynn Eilers came out to hunt with her friend Jim Jacobs and best friend, Chipper, her Springer Spaniel. They picked a cloudy, cool, blustery day so I tucked the chukar in some tight spots in the Clubhouse Field to give the trio some good shot opportunities.  Chipper is 14 years old, but did a great job finding and flushing the chukar out of the milo strips.  Chukars can be tricky fliers and add a 20 mph wind and they can really escape quickly, but the hunters had some good shots, even knocking down a bird deep in the timber with a long shot.
