I apologize.....

I am so sorry, but after about 30 hours of grouse hunting I think I shot the only grouse in Washing County. But being the nice guy I am I let two of my buddies jump it first so they could share in the fun.

Three of us have been going out and today there was four hunters and two pointers. I think we had the grouse out numbered.

Looking on the bright side I never miss a shot all year.

Sure miss the good ole days........

Re: I apologize.....

That's fine, but the sharpshooter you are - please stay out of Beaver County. I'm after the lone grouse in this county!

Re: I apologize.....

I hunted in Beaver county one trip where I have shot many grouse and now many years ago. I saw a huge amount of fox tracks in the snow, but did not find your lone bird.

He is safe for another year.

Years back I could go to OH and hunt until the end of Feb. and the limit was three and several days I got three. However that too has change to two birds and ends Jan. 30th.

Try hunting north central pa. There are more birds. I only wish I had more time to hunt.

Haha, I know how you feel! I normally don't have time to get up to the really great grouse areas, so I try to do the best I can with the local spots. It feels like there are only 1 or 2 grouse around here too!

Re: I apologize.....

He's out there. I've seen him.

I feel like we're talking about sasquatch. I think there have been more sightings of 'him' than my gouse.

Hunt/Fish365, north central is on my agenda for next season. I am able to get to Somerset/Cambria county a few times a year to hunt with the dog. At least I can get him on birds there.

It's on my agenda too, and it's only a short drive away

Re: I apologize.....

This may be just one of those Internet rumors, but I heard a guy actually shot a grouse, a pheasant, and a rabbit all in the same year in Pa. this year.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Borntohunt,
Never apologize it a sign of weakness, and although the grouse population is low in some counties because of the lack of cuts, with a good dog you can still find birds, and do not worry you did not shoot the only Grouse in that county. Actually this was a decent Grouse season thu out north western and north central Pa. A might wet for sure but great dog work and serious gunning.
