Last trip of the season

I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a 3-day trip to look for chukar in the moutains east of Bishop, CA. The bird numbers are way down - I have not even shot at a chukar in California in the past two years, but for a few years before that I had pretty good hunting. But I really like to be in the field on New Year's Day, just to set the tone for the year. I would watch USC in the Rose Bowl if I were home but I'd rather be up in the high, lonely places.

Take care all, and may the new year be good to you.

Have a good trip and be safe!

Happy New Year!

Go Penn State! x8-)

No chukars down here either, Pete.

This could be the start of a great year! Or not.

Drive carefully.

Pete: happy new year and good luck! That's beautiful country up there, although I have never tried hunting in that area. Ever been to the Green Church hot springs? Would imagine that would feel pretty good after a day of chasing chukar.
