SFW Puts Chukar on Utah’s Mountains

SFW purchased 2,100 Chukars chicks in 2016 and raised them to adults. Several hundred were recently released in Sevier County and surrounding areas. Some were released in Black Canyon, some at Manning Creek near the Elbow T Ranch southeast of Marysvale, and others at a site in the Breaks on Poverty Flat southwest of Monroe, Utah. More birds will be released ahead of the statewide youth pheasant, waterfowl and pheasant hunt day September 17th. Many thanks to Paul Niemeyer, DeLoss Christensen, Jake Albrecht and the SFW Sevier County Chapter team for all of their hard work with SFW’s Chukar and Pheasant programs.
