I did a bit of bird and rabbit hunting the last two days after work.

Here's my first cottontail with a .22lr:

Later that day and the next were spent chasing chukars! Now that is fun! Lots of walking over lots of rocks. We were able to get into a couple of big covey's, but after we got a few and they scattered it got tough. Without a dog, picking up the singles was quite a bit harder. Boy those things like to hide! ;)

Here's my first chukar:

Here's Mark and I with the first day's take (one of the birds I'm holding is his):

All in all we got 12 birds over two days in only about 5 hours total of hunting, which I think's pretty good. We'd have had more with a dog if it was just to find the couple we shot then lost. :( I do think I found one more GREAT way to spend time!!! :D

Nice work on the birds, but what is this Arkansas'ing thing you got going with birds? ;)

Nut- Yep. I also killed one with a bow once, but mostly shotguns and beagles to run them to me.

miller- Just improving my odds! ;) Maybe someday I'll get to where I can knock them out of the air. Heck, right now I'm happy just getting some, birds that is!

Ithaca- I'll take you up on that offer! :D
