    Chukar in Otago

    Hi all
    Just a quick question, has anyone had success targeting Chukar in Otago?
    I have seen some below Mt St Bathans whilst chasing sheep but that was last century. I was wondering about hunting on the old Micheal peak run which is now DOC land.
    Thoughts?

    Predator numbers to high? Lack of habitat?

    I know a spot that I've seen 5-10 birds each time I've been down that way. Its a hell of a way to Lug a shotgun.

    I will do it some day as they are awesome birds. I'd be lying if I hadn't spent too much time while chasing deer looking at Chukar in the Binos. I got very lucky finding the population to be fair.
