Derek Allen is a Chukar Hunter/Adventure-Seeker originally hailing from Alabama.
Hailing from Alabama, hence the nickname “Bama”, Derek Allen embodies the true essence of a Chukar Hunter- being an Adventure-Seeker.
As I have said before, “The more time you spend in Chukar Country, the higher likelihood something will happen”. That being said, I wrote a story called “6 Ways to Die in Chukar Country”, never expecting anyone to completely connect with all the topics discussed. Well, the most astonishing of all: The Mountain Lion encounter.
Follow along as Derek shares the story of his close encounter with a couple Mountain Lions and his paralyzing fear of snakes. Also, and the most interesting, is his fly-in Chukar Hunt into Idaho’s Frank Church Wilderness.
While covering all these great stories, we also discuss gear, dogs and lots of other great “nuggets of knowledge”
