Re: Grouse in Maine!
We got into the birds!! Flushed 29 grouse, shot at 14 and bagged 9. Saw 8 woodcock, shot at 4 and bagged 3. Our oldest English Setter was amazing!! He stayed inside 35 yards and circled the woods nicely for us. Had a few productive points on his first grouse and doodles!! Took the Ithaca Flues 20g, 2 1/2" with 26" barrels and the Franchi AL 48 Super 28g. Looking forward to hunting birds there again. I'll post pix when I move them to my cpu. Plenty of food in the woods and swamps. Locals said bird numbers were down from last year due to a very wet spring. The woodcock flight didn't happen yet either as weather was still mild in Canada. The lodge will have 4 new mounts and a bunch of new tail fans!! Good times!!
