Re: Grouse Hunting Help
We were out grouse hunting when one of the guys hurt his knee and and couldn't maneuver in the woods by the end of the day. There were 3 of us with 3 dogs busting brush, while our limping friend walked the logging road that cut through the cover. On that one push, he ended up getting more shooting than the rest of us. This was in mid January with plenty of snow on the ground. I suspect something similar could work for you. You could drive ahead and park 100 yards out, wait for the guys to get within 20 yards, then repeat. You'd obviously need to be extremely careful with your shots, and not shoot towards the approaching hunters.
Are you able to swing a shotgun while seated on your four-wheeler?
If you are north of I-80 and west of State College and need someone to be the brush beater, you can PM me. I know a few guys and myself that would be willing to help you out either at the place you mentioned or at one of the places I hunt (assuming you could get 4 wheeler access).
