Chukar and Gray Partridge - Hunting Information

Idaho also offers some of the best chukar and gray partridge hunting in the West, not to mention robust populations of California quail. Chukars and gray partridge (huns) thrive on large tracts of public ground, and are available to everyone willing to make the effort to hunt them.

Chukars are typically found in rocky, arid areas covered with cheat grass and sage brush. Gray partridge (huns) are often found in close proximity to chukars and adjacent to cultivated land across Idaho. Expect to find the best populations of chukar and gray partridge in the Clearwater, Magic Valley, and Southwest regions.
