A Chukar Hunter's Companion by Pat Wray
A Chukar Hunter's Companion lives up to its name. It's a companion you can count on for accurate information and fun. It's a friend who'll help get you ready for a successful hunting trip, then go along to help you enjoy it.
At its core, Companion is a how-to book. It explores the entire process, from physical conditioning through the gear you'll need, and then the hunt itself. The hunt section is a comprehensive look at the entire process, from deciding on a location to caring for your birds. Companion also includes an exceptional section on dogs, including a chapter on hunting without dogs, a state-by-state hunting summary and a fine chapter of chukar recipes.
Companion is much more than a simple how-to book. Pat Wray is a storyteller of the first order and his essays are alternately hilarious, heartwarming, thought provoking and deeply troubling. Readers will find themselves learning a great deal about chukar hunting and much, much more. Wray's stories, essays and his uniquely humorous perspective on chukar hunting and life (which are not much different in his mind) raise A Chukar Hunter's Companion far above the normal hunting book fare.
Pat Wray has the heart of a hunter, the gift of a writer and an unerring sense of story. His ever-present humor sparkles throughout the text. This is not just a hunter's book; it is a reader's pleasure.
