The “Good” About Late Season Bird Hunting In Idaho

By Dave Halgerson, Designated Broker, Licensed in: ID, OR

As the temperature drops in the last months of the year, so does the number of bird hunters in the field!
You just need to be ready for the elements and the possible slick conditions, but after those earlier hunts of putting in the miles, you will be in prime condition to hike up any ridge. Right?

This can be the best time of year for your dog also, whether it’s chukars, quail, or pheasants. The air is moist and filled with the scent of air currents mixed with cooler temperatures. You may need a little more ‘umph’ in the shells you use because the shots may get a little longer in distance. You will learn that it will be well worth the effort knowing you may be the only person on the ridge as you look over the Snake River Canyon in the Cecil D Andrus Wildlife Area or the sage-covered hills of the Owyhee Mountains, located south of Boise. With Idaho having close to 70% of its lands in the public domain, there are plenty of places to get those last days in the field.

Even the roosters that earlier in the year were scattered throughout their individual haunts, find their way together to concentrate on the river bottoms and drainages for the food and cover each offer. And the bonus is, there will be quail in the same areas.

Don’t put that shotgun down yet, you are just getting started!
