All proceeds aid Kittitas County Field & Stream Club efforts to support
wildlife while improving recreation opportunities in our county.

Our first Chukar Run was in 1987 to support our game bird raise-and-release project.  Club members raised thousands of chukars, pheasants and more to supplement local populations.  In 1996, Outdoor Life magazine touted Kittitas County as best for chukar hunting.

Over the years our projects have evolved to include supporting other local outdoor organizations and representing our county's recreation interests on a variety of local and state committees regarding land use and game and wildlife management.  

Throughout the years, the Chukar Run has remained the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts and your support is most sincerely appreciated.
