So it's not as catchy as the commercial. Sue me. But I do feel like chukar tonight. For the unitiated, a chukar is an Asian partridge, a relative of pheasants. They hold well for a bird dog, are fun to shoot, and taste like little bits of deep fried heaven. I shot two of them and a pheasant at a hunting preserve shoot this morning. It was colder than heck, with a 30 mph wind, a skiff of snow, and 20 degree temps, but when the little breast nuggets and thighs emerge from the oil tonight, it's going to be fully worth it.
Dave and Marty, it was a pleasure to shoot and freeze along with you, as always. I'm looking forward to next time.
