Scouting Success

Nichole was kind enough to let us camp in area that I wanted to scout for grouse. Not only was it a nice area to camp but we found some grouse. It's always nice to reward your dog for her hard earned work!
Mia had around 20 contacts on 4 broods of grouse. Three of the broods had 4-6 birds in each of them and then we found 2 huge males hanging out in the dark timber.

We'll be back at it soon enough. Next time it will be for real!

Matt, Nice camp and beautiful sunset. Sounds like you guys have way more grouse this year than us. In our little piece of heaven, (Montana) we usually have lots of grouse. This year, hardly any, probably because of a very wet spring. Glad the population is thriving somewhere! Good luck....hunting should be great! And way to go, on capturing the grouse flush. That's rare.
