Echoes on rimrock: in pursuit of the chukar partridge
From memories of heading into early twilight to go hunt with his father to stories of pursuing the chukar partridge in the dead of winter, author and avid hunter, Buddy Levy, presents a lyrical and honest look at the world of hunting the chukar partridge. ""Chukar hunting combines the best of all upland game bird pursuit into one challenging package: gorgeous, complicated, strong flying birds, physically and psychologically demanding terrain, and difficult and rewarding dog work. What else is there?""
Echoes on Rimrock: In Pursuit of the Chukar Partridge combines compelling stories of pursuit with helpful and practical information about the sport. After years of hunting the chukar, Levy shares advice on how and where to find birds, hunting tactics, maneuvering across precipitous terrain, and the necessary gear, from guns to boots. Also included are Levy's insights on choosing the right bird dog (his own beloved dog, Cajun, makes several appearances in the book), and recipes for the ""chukar gourmet.""
This book explores all the layers and facets of hunting through powerful descriptions of the hunt itself, the natural history of the birdand the landscape, the physical demand of pursuit, and finally thoughtful reflections on the allure of sport hunting. As Levy explains, ""Chukar hunting is meaningful not only for its harvests but for where it takes you, for the landscapes you have to enter....The pursuit will teach about the behavior of the creatures you encounter as well as the limits of your mental and physical tenacity.""
