Wildlife and conservation enthusiasts,

The Utah Chukar & Wildlife Foundation (UCWF) was created in February of 2004. The UCWF is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on improving chukar and other upland game populations, habitat, and hunting on Utah's public lands.

The UCWF is an active participant in wildlife legislature, Utah's upland game laws, the Utah Upland Advisory Council, volunteer projects, fund raising, guzzler and water development, wildlife education, habitat improvement, and more.

We are making a difference and with sustained support we will continue to make a difference for upland game in Utah. Become a member today!


Much thanks to those who helped with the Outdoor Adventure Days youth activity in June and the first two guzzler installs. More information about future guzzler installs and the Parker Mountains sage grouse count are included in this issue.

Please look for emails with more updates about volunteer opportunities and please spread the word to dedicated hunters, interested volunteers, or other volunteer groups. Most of our projects could use more volunteers.

With this dry weather pattern, I am concerned about chick production, but some parts of the state are in decent shape and I have seen plenty of grasshoppers in many desert areas.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a good hatch. We will have a better idea of chick numbers in our next newsletter.

Hopefully the fire season will be kind to us.  Be careful with any activity that has fire starting potential in the desert.  Work hard to keep yourself and the dogs in shape for the upcoming season; it will be here in no time.  Thanks as always for your support!
