From the Nevada Department of Wildlife:
This year’s Nevada Chukar Hunting Forecast, an annual report put out by the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) that takes habitat conditions and statewide survey results to estimate chukar populations, was recently released and predicts good chukar hunting for much of Nevada.
"We were hoping the spring and summer rains we had would provide good conditions for chick survival and they did," said Chris Healy, public information officer for NDOW.
NDOW biologists found that timely spring rains received in late March and early April improved habitat conditions throughout much of northern Nevada. Additionally, some significant rainfall events that took place over the summer reduced dependency on depleted water sources and increased available cover and food sources, likely increasing survival of both adults and broods. In other words, Nevada sportsmen can look forward to a better season than last year.
