Don Quilici

Barry Ginter, the new managing editor for the Nevada Appeal, said that he would like to learn how to hunt Chukar in Nevada.

He needs to know that you should not hunt something that: Can fly, can run and is smarter than you.

Good luck, Barry! You’re going to need it.

Don Hettrick (Don H) of Carson City told Don Quilici (Don Q) that he (Don H) was carrying a stick, knife and gun and looking for Don Q after writing about their recent trout fishing adventures at Pyramid Lake. Geez, those were just the facts.

Jim Herndon, NDOW Operation Game Thief Coordinator, had to make a quick, emergency run to Ely for the OGT display board for the Carson Valley Chukar Club fund raiser on Saturday. He finally remembered on Thursday that the display was still in Ely.

Kerry Kilgore of Carson City and his brother-in-law Mark Holmes had a beer (or two!) while they were deep frying a 14-pound turkey for last Thanksgiving. By the time they remembered it was cooking, it had become a 6-pound hunk of charcoal.

Don Quilici, Nevada Appeal Outdoors editor, kept his pitiful record intact. He has now attended 19 annual Carson Valley Chukar Club fund raisers without winning one raffle prize. However, he came close this year. One of the tickets drawn was No. 3501 and he had No. 3502.

Mike Zuppen of Douglas County drew a Wild Turkey hunting tag for the first week of April at the Mason Valley Wildlife Management Area near Yerington. Sure hope he doesn’t fall asleep like he did when he was fishing. He only woke up when the bell began ringing on his fishing pole when that big trout caught itself.
