Great training bird...gets up and flies better than quail and not as "bulky" as pheasant

Nothing beats a pigeon. Fly better than any chukar and go back to the loft for another day of training

If you we're so far, Id scoop them up for my training club. Try posting to Facebook. Birds are always the hardest thing to get your hands on.

I wish I could but unfortunately communist Facebook doesn't  allow the selling of animals.

Not if you shoot them they don't!!!

Haha that's where the chukars (or feral pigeons) come into play. Ferals are the best since they usually fly pretty well.

Sometimes you have to get clever with wording. Guys use "up for discussion" ,"up for grabs" or something along those lines.

Never ate a chukar, but ive eaten pigeons before oddly enough. Family hunts them in the mountains back home in Europe though, so I know they taste good. 

When I hunted NY preserves we would usually get Chukkars as they were cheaper and flew just as good as pheasants.  The dogs were happy, anything with a feather was all they needed.

I would breast them and marinate them in Spedies Buffalo Wing Sauce then grill them.  Except for the occasional lead pellet, they were always a big hit.

If you get older, flight trained birds then you'll have good flyers. I'm used to them being hit or miss during the summer training because the breeders are cranking them out as quick as possible. If I ever hunt wild ones, ill be sure to eat those.
