My brother-in-law, my nephew and I went scouting for some new "Dusky" Grouse coverts today. We did find some great cover and spotted a few birds. I'd say this was a successful trip. Even better than this was to hear that our opening day covert looked even better. One of my hunting buds went out today and saw over twenty birds!! I'm going nuts trying to keep focused for the next three weeks.
PS: I also have a new shotgun on the way: Ugartechea 12 ga 600 series, great condition at a very good price.
