Re: Grouse Hunting Logs

I'm not sure I want anyone to read it if I did keep one Might be too embarrassing.
Although I do see why someone would want one if the hunt a variety of different areas.

Re: Grouse Hunting Logs

I've kept one for a few years now. I record when, where, time of day, weather conditions, guys hunted with, dogs hunted with, birds flushed, birds pointed, birds shot (usually left blank, lol), comments on how the dogs worked, and any details of the hunt that may come in handy down the road.

RuffedG on here keeps a really nice journal. Maybe he'll jump in.

Re: Grouse Hunting Logs

I have every grouse I ever bagged recorded- since age 12. I keep track of birds flushed, birds pointed, number of shots taken, hours and birds bagged. At the end of the year I calculate flush rates and compare to my previous years. One year I really went crazy and figured out not only flush rates but hours per bird bagged, flushes per bird bagged, shots per bird bagged etc. Don't do that anymore..lol.

I also write a quick description of covers hunted, dogs ran, who I hunted with and any outstanding dog work or neat things that happen. The log has helped me remember many forgotten covers over the years. It also helps me rember some of the days of great dog work of past hunts and dogs...

Re: Grouse Hunting Logs

I do by default. I keep a log of everything I do at my camp. The only grouse hunting I do is around camp so my hunts always get documented. Most of mine include the sentence, "Trip did great on the birds today. Too bad I can't shoot better."

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
