Canyon Hunting for Chukar and Hun

Open tab

Find yourself on an adventure into the rugged canyons of the Salmon River, the hills, and the land where the little red-legged devils live. The landscape is rugged and mostly intact. It has soul, it will harden your quads and soften your eyes. Chukar country reveals itself as the one that has stood the test of time.  These canyons don't care about the status quo, they are sturdy and weathered with features and scars dating back 40,000,000 mile years.  

Nestled within these expansive canyons, the elusive chukar partridge brings a touch of beauty and uniqueness to the rugged landscapes. These charming birds, with their distinctive markings, find refuge on the canyon walls, creating a mesmerizing sight against the natural backdrop. Hunting chukars is a thrilling experience that takes upland game hunting to the next level, as these little birds make their homes in remote and challenging terrains. Venturing into the vastness of Idaho's canyons to pursue the chukar promises not only an exciting hunt but also an opportunity to immerse oneself in the breathtaking scenery that serves as the backdrop for this captivating avian adventure.

The chukar shares these vast canyons the Hungarian partridge, commonly known as the hun. These two avian species coexist amidst the rugged beauty, creating a unique tapestry of wildlife in the heart of Idaho's canyons. Much like their chukar counterparts, huns add an extra layer of excitement to the hunting experience, as they, too, prefer the remote and challenging terrain.

Embarking on a hunting expedition for chukars and huns in the canyons of Idaho unveils a double delight for enthusiasts. The striking contrast between the chukar's canyon wall nests and the huns' ground-level habitats showcases the diversity of these birds' adaptations to their surroundings. The thrill of the hunt becomes a harmonious symphony of chasing chukars across elevated heights and seeking out huns amidst the rocky landscapes.

This combined pursuit not only elevates the hunting experience but also provides a rare opportunity to witness the convergence of nature's wonders in one of the most captivating regions of Idaho. As hunters navigate the remote canyons, they become participants in a thrilling story of survival and beauty, where chukars and huns coalesce to create an unforgettable adventure amidst the rugged allure of the Idaho wilderness.

Hunting over German Wirehair Pointers

Take your pursuit of chukar and huns in the captivating canyons of Idaho to the next level with the exceptional skills of German Wire-Haired Pointers. Renowned for their stamina, agility, and versatility as gun dogs, these four-legged companions play a crucial role in the success of the hunting expeditions. The coats of these pointers are tailored perfectly for the rugged Idaho Wilderness, providing protection against the diverse weather conditions and ensuring the dogs remain comfortable throughout the hunt.

The German Wire-Haired Pointers, meticulously trained by White Pine Outfitters, embody the epitome of a superior hunting partner. Their innate ability to cover vast amounts of ground is indispensable in navigating the expansive and challenging terrains of the Idaho Wilderness. With a keen sense of smell and an unwavering determination, these dogs point chukar and huns, adding an element of precision to the hunting experience.

The guides and White Pine Outfitters will attempt to meet all schedules, but assume no responsibility for inconvenience or expense due to delays or changes.

        HEALTH AND AGE  You should be reasonably healthy because hunting trips require a certain amount of physical exertion. We suggest a minimum age appropriate for each of our specific trips. There is no upper age limit. Pregnant women and individuals with heart trouble should get physician approval before embarking on any hunting trip.  Persons with handicaps and challenges are welcome on our trips, we will need to talk with you to be sure we can meet your special requirements and needs for safety.

        Inclement weather conditions should be expected in the fall and winter.  The right clothing can make your hunting trip comfortable even in unfavorable weather.  Clothing on a hunting trip must have the ability to keep you warm even if it gets wet.  Synthetic fabrics such as polypropylene, capilene, Synchilla, and polyester pile will keep you warm when wet and will dry quickly.  Wool will keep you warm when wet, but takes longer to dry.
