Best grouse hunting in years!! 15 minutes is all it took and myself and my dog had our 3 birds. Dog thought it would be fun to kill a rooster pheasant too, not a good deal :eyeroll: Still haven't figured out how to tell her not to chase pheasants till season opens. Anyhow, only hunted grouse 2 days and spent the rest of the time hunting deer. Saw an average of 10 bucks a day with 18 bucks the most in one day. I saw 3 trophies I would have shot during gun season. Only let one arrow fly, wish I could redo but thats how it goes. Was amazed at the number of grouse I saw, saw a covey of 40 in one spot. Lots of pheasants also, they seem to be spreading into areas not commonly inhabited.
