Re: Here's something we'll never see again
I'm not sure what you mean by "something we'll never see again". If it's the write up in Sports Illustrated, you may be correct. If it's the Grand National Grouse Championship being held in Marienville, well that should happen again in 2015.
The Grand National Grouse championship is a coverdog field trial to supposedly determine the best Ruffed Grouse hunting dog in the United States. There are those on this message board who know much more about it than I, but I believe this trial is held the first Tuesday of November and rotates between Michigan, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania every 3 years. I know it was held in Marienville in 2012, 2009 and 2006.
Though the trial is held by "hunting" wild birds, no birds are actually shot in the trial. A blank gun is used when the grouse is flushed.
