Hunting Season - The Daily Bag

Wether its Small Game, Waterfowl or Big Game, I know weve got some Hunters in here, after all, It is an AMERICAN TRADITION!!!

Grouse Hunting Season is open.....One of my favorite past times and probobly the only thing that could tear me away from my other all to many hobbies ;o)

It was a bit slow out there today..........(But I walked rather than take the 4 wheeler and theres alot of ground cover yet. coulda used a Dog )
I saw 3 and Bagged 2...............First 2 go to Dinner for the In Laws..........In thier 80's, they grew up on Wild Game and they love grouse.

Since I couldnt hunt last year Its only fitting they get the first of the season............After all, they are not going to be around much longer.

Anybody else heading out hunting this weekend..........or been out this week??
Lets hear about your hunt

I'm jealous Todd. I love to hunt but, unfortunately, it's been years since I've made the time to. I'll live vicariously through your adventures.
The recurve bow (instinctive, no sights) eyes me every now and then from the closet and begs me to plunk it . . . the rifles stopped begging years ago, and the reloading equipment has enough dust on it to fill a 90lb bag. <sob>

Seasons? What's that? Poached eggs always tasted better. j/k

enjoy,

Mark

Grouse are yummy.

Todd, we are going to head to WVa the week of Thanksgiving. I'll keep you posted, hopefully with some pictures.

Someday, I want to get a MN license and come up and visit you and Musky Mike for a hunt.

We need a hunting smilie here.

Haven't been grouse or pheasant hunting in a few years. But deer season is coming up in November, and if I do as well as last year, I'll be plenty happy. I also hunt wild turkey in MN and WI when I win the lottery.

Oh boy! Grouse hunting!!! Brings back lots of good memories of growing up in Wisconsin. Seems I trimmed more cedar trees than getting grouse. Best tasting game bird I ever put in my mouth.

Question: How do grouse know when you have the gun loaded for deer and not with birdshot??? I've had some of the best straight away open shots when I had slugs in the shotgun. Switch to birdshot and they slip behind a tree in an eye blink. Worst scare I ever had was while deer hunting. I was carefully stepping over a deadfall and a grouse went out right under my foot. Bout had to change underwear.

Picked up 3 yesterday...saw 4.( windy day.... birds were kinda spooked)
Actually didnt hunt much, an hour in the morning and 2 hours before dark. Had to run over to Wisconsin yesterday.

I saw 2 Really nice Bucks and 1 spiker on the way home last night.
1 was an 8 point pushing 200 Lbs..........One had a Drama Rack (no count possible) easy 250 Plus Body.
Spiker had 5" antlers aprox. Nice body size..Maybe 160-165 lbs..he'd of been a good Eater

Had a Cold settle into my Chest so will be taking a few days to recover before pursuing the rest of Dinner
