Re: How often do you hunt a grouse covert?
I guess the question is "how many times per season would you revisit a grouse cover?" In my case I'd limit it to two per season, including the early and late seasons. I don't do much harm to the grouse population, due to my less than dismal wingshooting skills, however I still try to limit my forays. I get bored looking at the same scenery, and limiting my visits to a given cover forces me to try new places, which may turn out to be productive.
I do, however, have some woodcock covers that I'll hit more often because woodcock are here today and gone tomorrow; you can hit a cover one day and see nothing and a day or two later it can be teeming with birds.
