So here are the highlights:

<![CDATA[Why I Love Chukar]]> http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/why-i-love-chukar/ http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/why-i-love-chukar/ Thu, 6 Sep 2018 12:09:00 GMT There are some pretty strong feelings coursing through my veins when I converse about the Wiley Chukar. The intent of this piece is not to defend why I think they are the greatest game bird ever, or that they are as tasty as Duck Confit.  It’s just about MY relationship with them, and why I acquire and train dogs for Chukar hunting first and foremost.

<![CDATA[Bird Hauling Vest Review!]]> http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/bird-vest-review/ http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/bird-vest-review/ Tue, 24 Jul 2018 12:07:00 GMT For almost two decades I have been in pursuit of upland birds.  During this time I have worn, destroyed, loathed, and loved wing shooting vests.  I would like to discuss the ones I have personally put through the paces.  This is not what my buddy said, or what hunting magazine Mr. John Brown professional model person thinks.   These are all vests that I have slung over my shoulder while in the field.  These findings are based upon my style of hunting, and my body dimensions of course. I always chase Chukar first and foremost.  I am a tad over 6 Ft., and fluctuate between 210-230 lbs. (depending if Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale is available).  This is my straight dope on several rigs, and what I think in my humble opinion is the best vest I have owned to date. The below outfits are probably 75% of my total vests owned and used.

<![CDATA[The Dos]]> http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/the-dos/ http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/the-dos/ Mon, 25 Jun 2018 12:06:00 GMT I was advised I should have considered posting this entry as my first blog post.  Noted. Now that I have scared everyone, let’s talk about the “dos”, rather than the “don’ts”. Here are few categories to help you, the neophyte hunter, through your first couple outings.  There are a myriad of areas we could focus on, but let us look specifically at three: Dogs, Terrain, and Safety.  Again, these are just some high level views intended to help you out.  I plan to break down and focus on each subject area in greater detail in later posts.

<![CDATA[Wing Shooting Partner 101]]> http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/wing-shooting-partner-101/ http://www.lonesageoutfitters.com/blog/wing-shooting-partner-101/ Mon, 11 Jun 2018 12:06:00 GMT “Oooooooohhhhhhh, so you are that guy?”  Probably our most frequently used dig among my hunting partners.  We have all hunted with somebody that we thought was being a Turd Ferguson in the moment, or maybe something more serious like a safety or ethical violation.
