Jesus Christ dude, 10 years to do an intro.  That may be a record.


You got any grouse left to hunt up there? They used to be thick down here, but have pretty much almost disappeared over the last decade or two. Used to be able to flush half a dozen in an hour or two, now lucky to flush one in a couple days of tramping the woods in most places.

I've only jumped a handful in the local mountains during the last several years. Sad.


Grouse can be found but they are fewer each year it seems.  Find the habitat and try to cover as much ground as possible. Typically with the dog we will find a bird or two.  Best day was 4 flushes two years ago.  Woodcock are prevalent around here and hold well for the dog.

Four flushes is your best day? Damn

When I walked the hills, I'd get 8 or 10 on average. Best day had over 20

Times are changing for sure


15 years ago 6-10 without a dog was a good day.  It's steadily decreased and now 4 flushes is my best day.  Regardless, still a nice walk in the woods.

Same thing in Michigan.  Numbers keep going down.  Used to cycle on that 7 year theory.

Ours were 90 plus percent gray phase.  All I see is brown in Madison County.

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.
