    No doubt about that!

    I've got a well seasoned English pointer that eastern Oregon chuckar's still have nightmares about!

      You occasionally see them up north too....escapees, all.

        Could be he is an escapee from someone's 'yard'......I raised them last year for training my dog - Great fun...I had 50 eggs in the incubator this spring and they were hatching up until the point my daughter (bless her) thought she had turned the thermostat down, then turned it up and cooked the little guys in their eggs...poor things...maybe a better life than getting flushed up and shot for the dog (and grill). LOL

        The one you saw won't last long, likely he will be eaten by a lynx or fox or bird or prey..for sure they cannot survive in the wild up here...not long enough to become established at any rate...

          Yeah......no different than the escapee pheasants I've killed in my yard. Go up to Cooper Landing and you might see a turkey or two as well....
          Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

              Deleterious wildlife.

              No closed season, no bag limit (within the restrictions on base, of course)
              If cave men had been trophy hunters the Wooly Mammoth would be alive today

                Depending on where you so it, I have a pretty good idea on how it got there, word has it he was a pretty good flyer.

                  It might be 1 of the 2 that we lost out of our coop on the East side of Anchorage.

                      Sorry, know this is an old post but do you know if they lost more? I had one in my yard over by Jewel Lake today.

                          I'm also late to the game here, but I have it on good authority that someone was releasing them on Ft. Richardson about that time. I saw one myself at Rabbit Creek a few days later.

                            shot a couple chukars two years ago here in north pole, found one dead on a creek I was trapping last winter. I think the guys training dogs in the flood control plain release them ive heard tell?
