What great pics folks are posting. Not a grouse in sight around here. Going to be a boring winter if I don't have a passel of ruffies to keep fed. Back to the chainsaw issue: I just bought a Stihl 140 cordless chainsaw and it absolutely kicks butt! I cut down a 50ft tall, 14" aspen with the 12" bar in way less than 30 seconds. I am going to love this baby! Two friends watching went right down and each bought one for themselves.

I felt the grouse numbers were maybe slightly down from last year, but not much. Of course I spent a lot of time with young inexperienced dogs on the ground so maybe not. I HAVE HUNTED this particular area every year since 1986, so am very intimate with the area.
Garry, I did not get to hunt with Kenny and Ruby, but when Ruby and my Fancy were pups we met up at a preserve and worked them together on pheasant. I am looking forward to hunting with her in Kansas.
Willie seemed to do a little better on grouse than Doodle, but I took both dogs out to my club for pheasant Wed. Doodle seemed to do better on pheasant than Willie. Willie glides thru the cover like a Cadillac, while Doodle runs like a monster truck. Doodle is a little sprite of a dog, maybe 30 lbs, almost pure white, and lots of personality.
Richard, that chainsaw sounds great--I think I know what I want for Christmas.
I'll post more pictures if I get them downloaded to my laptop this weekend.

So, Richard, that Stihl cordless is robust enough for us that don't make a living with a chainsaw? You should draw a commission from Stihl, because it sounds like several of us may buy one off your experience.....

All the best,
Dave

Richard, how long does the battery last with a full charge, I mean how long of a running time?

Charlie - my brother in law has one of those and when it goes off it knocks him right on his butt.

He was at work one day when it went off and he went down... his foreman came over to help him back on his feet again and it went off again and because his foreman was holding his arm the foreman got knocked on his butt too.

Well 25 percent is better than 15 and 15 is better than nothing.

Stay well and don’t over do anything.

The "bird belt"--a great way to carry birds on warm days( there is a necker on each side, + game straps.
There has to be a bird around here somewhere.
Betty, age 14, got a little tired while on point, so she "set" for a while--no loss of intensity otherwise, and yes I got that bird. Fancy is backing.
