I like hunting Sharpies. Not a challenging bird to shoot on the wing but wary prey since they are always on the lookout. Plenty of walking involved!

We saw some singles and a couple groups of 6 & 8.

I shot my Charles Daly 12ga Feather Weight with paper hull shells #6 shot that I hand loaded for us. 980290DB-C25F-4A67-930B-162CAF1EDB15_1_105_c.jpeg

My friend and I got into pretty good numbers of them this morning. Four shot at with three in the bag. My dogs had fun. Lab made nice retrieves.

Right in the middle of beautiful country with birds, a great dog, and bird gun. That is the right way to "get your steps in."


I have a nice Columbian Sharptail mounted I shot in the Ririe area on one of my first trip to Idaho from Michigan around 2000, My wife and I shot Blue, Ruffed and Sage grouse on that hunt along with Hun's and Chukar. That was over our first pair of Setters, we bought a place in Challis the following Spring and moved there in 2007 for 12 years went thru five more Setters. Tried my last year there 2019 for Sharptails with no luck.
