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!
Fall is here! I have spent a lot of time in the desert this summer and I can say with confidence there are plenty of chukars in many areas this year. It will be a good year to spend some time in the desert hills. It is also a good year to explore and spread your hunting out. You should be able to find a variety of mountain ranges with good bird numbers. I believe these are the best numbers I have seen since 2005-2006. There are some areas of the state that seem to still be struggling, but the majority of the state should have above average chukar numbers this year. It also looks like hunting for other upland species should be similar or up from last year with some areas having good numbers of birds. I wish you luck and enjoyment as you pursue upland game and enjoy the wild public lands with which we are blessed.
Thanks to the many of you who volunteered this summer we had more projects than volunteers. We hope to continue our tradition of being a strong volunteer force that makes a difference. Please email me any stories, gear recommendations, of suggestions to add to our newsletter this year. We always appreciate hearing from new people.
Now I just need to get in shape, get the dogs in shape, improve my shooting, find all my gear, find all the honey holes, dump all my savings into gas, tires, and vehicle repairs, etc., etc., etc……
