    Pretty neat Lee, but did you have to shoot the grouse on the porch?

    Seriously, great start to a new hunting relationship.

    That's certainly good grouse country where you live!! If I lived closer and still had my mountain goat climbing gears, Gidget and I would join in the rocket chase!! I saw a lot of ruffed grouse driving my MH across the Blue Ridge Parkway a few years back! Good luck guy!! Hap

    ANY hunting over a dog is better than hunting without one.

    Hap,

    With me being disabled I do most of my hunting on fairly level logging roads that I can drive up to or use my 4wheeler to get to, or walk up old creek beds!

    What size shot do you use when they are sitting on the porch? Jeff

    #8s work best you can cover the whole porch that way. I had a pointer yrs ago that would hunt around the farm and bring a quail and leave it at the back door for me, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.lol

    Lee, any wild grapes in your coverts? After wild grapes get ripe, it's fairly easy to ambush the drunken grouse! My mom and I was gathering wild grapes for jelly years ago and a grouse flew into a limb and broke his neck. I'd loved to have a video of drunken grouse, some can hardly walk let alone fly. It's a crack-up to watch their antics when the grapes ferment in their craw! :) Hap

    Hap,

    That's one thing I look for when I'm out deer,bear or trout fishing is structure that will hold the birds, grapes, shoemate trees I think it's called, it has red like pine cone type seed pod and the really like them. Later on in the year they will go to the laurel buds. I think this is going to be a good year, just this week had 5 birds and that's good for here.

    thanks
    lee
