Chucker

Hey there brokenarrow saw this thread and thought I'd ask how the chucker hunting is when there is snow on the ground? Where would you find them at this point?

lower then usuall

in the snow its kind of tuff you dont find them at water hardly and you dont see them on the tops to much, i find them on hill sides  just below big rock formations alot of the snow melts of those rocks faster and provides them with enough water, so they dont travel to much southern facing slopes are usually best they tend to have the snow melt off faster or have less of it, being they recieve the most sun light. they wont stay in areas with to much snow as they cant get food they'll stay right on the edge of  the snow line. thats just my experience with them in the snow.
