Parting Shots


2016-17, even though it was abbreviated by weather, was possibly my all-time favorite season. I began the season in better shape than ever, saw more birds than ever, enjoyed two fantastic dogs working beautifully together every single time we hunted, and spent much of the time in the field with my amazing wife and some very good friends and family. Here are some of the image-memories of this beautiful season, courtesy of Leslie and her gifted eye. Her chukar hunting photos help me get through the off-season. Enjoy.



See you next season!
See you next season!

  1. Thanks,

    Leslie’s wonderful photos will help me get through until next season as well!



  2. Though I have never met you; as I follow your year it seems I become a part of it. I appreciate all the events and great photos. I will miss following along. Thanks for the memories.

    You both be safe and healthy!


  3. Great selection of photos! Love the 5th shot, with the nearly vertical terrain. No cigarette butts up there! Thanks for sharing and let’s hope the snow melt across chukar country continues.

  4. Thanks Bob and Leslie, great partnership and photos with your Brits. Yes, it was a good season for me and Bobo (my French Brit). We have been coming in Oct/Nov all the way from Calgary, Alberta to hunt Hells Canyon and other places for the past 5 years.
    Let’s all stay in shape for next season!

  5. It’s always good here there were plenty of birds for a extra enjoyable season. It was tough here in Nevada nature again through us a curve ball with perfect conditions this last spring there was almost no hatch. My dogs again pulled it off and managed to find a few birds every day. The bright part of the season was my shooting after using the Chris Batha’s Instinctive Shot method I went from 30/40% to 80% success retraining my self really paid off what a great book. Lots of practice shooting and running the dogs and then it will be next season. Have fun & good luck
