The Western States Chukar and Gray Partridge Management Guidelines (Guidelines) have been developed under the auspices of the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ (WAFWA) Western Bird Conservation Committee. Development of the Guidelines is part of a continuing effort to establish species-specific conservation strategies to guide resource planning and on-the-ground habitat management initiatives. Geographic coverage of the Guidelines is limited to the range of chukar and gray partridge within the western U.S. and Canada. Assessments of partridge species outside this range are not included in the Guidelines.
