The Chukar is considered one of the most challenging Upland Game birds to hunt due to it's quick flight, steep natural habitat and tendency to run.
When disturbed Chukar Gamebirds prefer to run, but if necessary, can fly short distances. Chukar travel in groups ranging from 4-50 birds called coveys. When in captivity, the Chukar game bird will lay 1 egg per day if eggs are collected regularly.
This Chukar Population is relatively unaffected by hunting or loss of habitat due to its remote and physically demanding terrain preferences. Their population number are most largely affected by weather patterns during the breeding season.
