Upland Idaho

Jake has come down with some kind of a bug so I decided today would be a good day to catch up on some of my domestic chores. Early this morning I ran through the internet checking on many of the chukar sites and was disappointed to see that the Upland Idaho site is going down. Karl had one of the better sites to keep upland bird hunters communicating.

If you're still reading my blog, I'm sorry to see you go Karl and thanks for the great site you provided. I wish I had the resources to moderate such a site because it was very interesting to get different takes on many different topics. My blog, as most blogs are, is pretty much about me and my dogs and there isn't a lot said about others exploits. Maybe one day I'll get it figured out how to create such a great site. My blog is so prehistoric that I still have to move any responses from my email to the blog and some times I'm not at my computer for a week or so.

It is what it is, but I'm going to miss Upland Idaho. Meanwhile, Jake and I will keep on trying to let you all know what we're finding out there. It may not always be much, but it's everything to us.

Take Sunday, for example. Conner and I spent a day on the hill with Jake. We didn't find a lot of birds, but the huns and chukars we found were already paired up and they gave Conner a great chance to work on flushing the birds that Jake would point.
The camera actually centered one of the birds for a change.
My biggest surprise was how many blues we saw. I hunted this area early last year and found very few blue grouse but by the number of birds Conner and I saw, Jake and I must have been daydreaming during the hunting season.
The camera wasn't fast enough to center this one.
Have a good spring.

Looks like fun. Too bad about Upland Idaho but we still have you Larry. I enjoy your blog and pictures of Jake and Connor .Now,if we can just get Barb out there. I'm sure she is too smart for that. Took another walk(no gun Sunday).Saw one grouse. Didn't even need a jacket. I ended up with a welt on my cheek from something. Must have been from some kind of weed. Still have it 2 days later. Hope its not shingles. Take care and keep having fun.

Larry,
do you think guys from upland idaho would be interested in a facebook group? It would be a page that only members could see and participate in. I really enjoyed upland idaho but was a fairly recent member. I am disappointed in will be going down.
I'd be willing to try and get the facebook group started. I'm not a huge facebook guy, but it would be a simple solution so guys could still post topics and pictures and such.
Anyway...just an idea.

Jeremy,
I checked today and saw that Upland Idaho was back on line. I'm not sure what is going on but I know Karl was thinking about going to facebook also a while back. I hate to see it go away. There's not many good sites to visit with others that share our passion.
