Got my first grouse this morning! Hunted for 4 hours and had two flushes! What a great way to start the season!!!



My fiancée was the one who flushed both birds and got to do the retrieving!

Great job, took pup out this afternoon. Checked out a couple of prospective areas. Had one wild flush and didn't want to shoot with pup out for the first time.

Yes there is 2 different guns! My fiancée was the retriever, she was the one who flushed the bird and when it flushed he bared off into my shot zone! That was her first time out hunting and she did pretty good! The 2 we flushed she was able to pull up, she was just hesitent in pulling the trigger!

Congrats on your first grouse! I hope you saved the tail, I wished I still had mine but it is long since gone.

Be careful grouse hunting can be like an addiction and take over all of your free time and money. Ask me how I know...

Thank you everyone!!!!

Yes the tail is saved! I have it spead out and covered the fleshy part with borax! If I had the extra money I would have loved to get it taxidermied!!! I would like get a grouse, pheasant and wood duck done at some point! They are all beautiful birds!!!

This will be my 3rd season hunting. In those three years I've targeted grouse about 6-8 times a year. Unfortunately the drive to the gamelands we hunt is a decent distance so I don't get out as much as I like.

Last year in the late season, we finally stumbled on an area where we got a nice number of flushes! So that's the area we hit first yesterday! In my three years of hunting I found that I absolutly love upland bird hunting! I just love walking through the woods/field not knowing when a bird will flush! It's peaceful, exciting, and really enjoyable!!! That's why we are getting a pup so we can spend more time bird hunting!!!
