The days forecast called for high heat by mid morning so Pete and I knew the morning's hunt was going to be quick. We made most of our time but we didn't find grouse in their usual spots but we jumped form covert to covert. By the end of the second covert we finally bagged our fist grouse of the 2011 season. The third covert of the morning finally brought in multiple flushes as we found a small brood. The quick action brought 2 birds to hand as Abby made a great blind retrieve on the second bird.
As the morning's hunt ended I quickly found my back to Denver. The next day brought a full day of work and then Nichole and I headed back up to camp for our annual Labor Day camping trip. A few friends joined us this year for our camping trip.
