All you need is some flu-flu arrows and some snaros and you get first crack on the chucks and quail before they get schooled.

Snaros come in 3" and 6" versions. Get the 6" if you can. They will kong a quail pretty good, it's like flinging an ashtray at them. The wires bend back when they hit something so they don't grenade when they hit.



Flu-flu arrows have big feathers on them to keep the arrow from zinging off out of sight. The huge feathers slow down the arrow to where it lands 30 yards out if you miss your target. You can buy flu-flu arrows already made or just refletch some junker arrows you have laying around. You're not going to be shooting 50 yards bullseyes with these so you don't need top dollar arrows.


Who's in?

On the opening date, DFG pushed backed their meeting to finalize the regs.

I might be in for some of this. Are you organizing an outing?

Looks like the regs will be set on the 18th so not sure when DFG will open the season. I guess we're sitting on our hands this Saturday instead of flinging arruhs at them evil chukars. :(

I spoke to one biologist from the upper desert at Bass Pro this weekend and he said this year will be BETTER than the banner year we had in 2005. Get in on this bandanza because it might be a bust for the next couple years depending on spring rains.

Im in, time to buy some flu flus. If this gets me an early season before the desert chickens are completly human shy, Ill give it a try.

DFG says the opener will be Saturday Aug 21st. I'm tied up running a booth at Bass Pro that weekend but I can make it the next Friday/Saturday Aug 27-28. Anybody want to do a campout at say Red Mtn our past Adelanto. Good coyote and jackrabbit out hunting out there too. I have to be back Sat night but was thinking camp Friday night out there. I just saw a pic of 200 chukars running across the hwy right near Randsberg too.
