My son and I went up to our deer country, (Ore Area) to work on some trails and hang stands and do our usual scouting. The grouse were all over the place. We ended up shooting 14 of them in 2 half days. We probably saw 40-50 birds. We just shot the ones in our way. No dogs. We didn't want to chase them down too much because we were trying to scout and get our work done. I'm smoking them right now! No short tails either. They were all solid birds. I can't imagine how much fun it would be with a dog and a whole weekend. The woodcock were also in the area still. I'm sure their migration is being slowed by the unusally nice weather as well. Pic's to follow.
