I think the only place I ever read about hunting chachalacas was in "Bird Hunting with Dalrymple", a 1986 book by Byron Dalrymple. He covers them in his final chapter: "The Wackiest Game Bird". None of the other writers who claim to cover all the upland bird species one can hunt in the US mention chachalaca hunting.

Stan, St.Catherine's Island has the bird. Island is in private hands and for years released exotics for preservation. It has dozens of ring-tailed lemurs as well. Gil

Stan, my memory about the bird is iron clad. However, iron rusts in the coastal salt air. I find no reference to St. Catherine's Island having the bird. However, I found references for Blackbeard and Sapelo. Sapelo has 400 acres of private holdings with the rest being owned by the State. Blackbeard is Federal. Blackbeard and Sapelo are separated by a tidal creek, Blackbeard Creek. One wing pump or glide clears the creek. From Blackbeard to St. Catherine's is about 2 miles across Sapelo Sound. More useless info: Blackbeard Island was owned by the infant US Govt. for the harvesting of Live Oaks for shipbuilding sailing vessels. Nearby St. Simon's Island supplied the ribs and stem for Old Ironsides (USS Constitution) one of the 6 frigates (all had Ga. live oak) that fought the Royal Navy during the War of 1812. As a former member of the navy, you might find Ian Toll's Six Frigates interesting. It's the story of the formation of the US Navy and the infighting it took to build the navy's first purpose made ships, the six frigates. Gil
