Partridge Hunting Season
Possession Limit: 15
Gray and chukar partridge are relatives of the pheasant, and also a transplant from Eurasia.
The gray, or Hungarian, partridge has a rusty colored face, and a gray chest with a dark colored U-shaped blotch on their belly. Their beak is dark and legs gray.
The chukar is similar with a red bill and feet and a black necklace.
Partridge can be found in grassy and agricultural areas, especially where there are shelterbelts and woodlots. They are jumpy and may flush in groups at some distance. A good hunting dog can be very helpful in getting on a covey of partridge.
