  • Grouse

    Went out for a freezing cold day of grouse hunting on Saturday. We went up to hunt off of the Parkway, but after 2 miles and the snow that piled up 3 inches while we were there, we came back off the mountain and went up into the Gorge where we heard some birds drumming during deer season. After about half a mile, my dog started hunting hard in a big blow down. I looked up on the side of the mountain and saw my dog break into point. Right then I saw the bird running from her on a big rock ledge. She repositioned one more time and locked down.I sent her on in and the bird flushed and flew straight out to me at 15 yards. One shot from the Benelli put him into the fryin' pan.

    We had a great day even though we had to deal with blinding snow and temps in the teens to start with.

    The other pic is of my dad from the bird he killed in January.
