Camp Site #1
Somewhere between Fallon NAS and Middlegate Nevada
The idea was, I would fly to Colorado and meet up with Paul, we would drive to Nevada, meet up with Bill, finish provisioning and head to the mountains for a week of camping and hunting Chukar and Mountain Quail.
We looked for Chukar over miles of beautiful and rugged terrain. By looking, I am referring to hiking up and down high elevation and rugged terrain. Coming from sea level Florida there were times (many times) I thought I would simply keel over form what felt like a lack of oxygen and from my middle aged body saying enough is enough. We all survived and I enjoyed some of the finest hiking I have ever enjoyed. The Chukar however were not where we were and despite our best efforts and hunting areas where they had been recently we did not kill any.
Exploring a long abandoned mine site.
All in all it was a fantastic trip thanks to intense wilderness and great friendships.
