The Irony of It All


What is a grouse doing on the railing of my deck, you may ask? That is what I was wondering as well, and this actually happened late last October when I had returned from a day of guiding.

While I was busy unpacking the truck and getting the dogs fed after our travails that day, my wife secretly was taking a picture from inside of my abode of this grouse seemingly taunting us from the safety of the deck.

Knowing the angst that it would cause me, Karen had the good sense to not actually
show me the picture however, until after my guiding season was done. Thanks, honey.


A Grouse Season Tease

Friend, author and avid grouse hunter Jerry Allen sent me a link to get the grouse hunting juices flowing again. As you know, we're nearly a full month from the last time we were allowed out in the woods, shotgun in hand, following a hard working dog in search of birds.

In short, it's the worst time of the year!

Check this out and let me know what you think and, thanks Jerry …
