My brother had two spots he wanted to try out for the last day. So back north we went. We only moved 5 birds all day. But it was well worth it! My brother got his first grouse. A nice mature hen. We saw a lot of rabbits and both managed to take one as well. We will be back for cottontails! We hunted over my pup and my brother's 3 year old female lab.
