Hannah Bates Rockchuck Memorial
Hello Everyone, just got back from the rock chuck derby shoot and had a blast. Spent all day Fri. scouting, finally late afternoon found them. Sat morn. Up early and hunting chucks, not realizing how sneaky and elusive they are, took a lot of glassing and hiding in the shadows of the rocks before got proficient at killing them. Shot 21 on Sat and 8 on sun . My biggest weighed in at 8 lbs but the top 5 placers weighted in at 14 pounds, thought I was doing good . 475 registered hunters this year. Half that years prior, so it was a huge success. I will be back next year, having my 8 lb. chuck mounted, cool critter.
