Quality Hunts for Bobwhite Quail, Pheasant and Chukar

Enjoy hunting your choice of quail, pheasant, chukar, or a combination of these. Challenge yourself with quail whose whirring wings, speed and agility can humble even the best shooter. Experience the grace of the chukar with its tight holding characteristics and rapid ascent when flushed, demanding quick  reflexes and timing, as the bird levels out, then changes direction. Brace yourself for the thunderous explosion of a flushing pheasant whose wiley ways can confound even the best bird dogs and gunners! All are excellent table fare, so enjoy your BBQ!
