Birddogdoc...your grouse looks ticked off, like you were spying on him drumming or something. (-:

The Sharptail is the first I ever shot in ND over my Lab Tessie. I can still visualize the flush, shot and retriever. The Woodie came from our marsh, a year in which we had hundreds stay right up to a hard freeze. Retrieved by Lab Lucy her first year hunting.

The luckiest shot I ever made on a grouse was this one. I asked Scott Kittredge to mount it for me and he did a really nice job.

Before and after pics. Taken with Rr. Admiral Thomas Perry's 20 gauge 28" Damascus DH.

I was hunting with Cam and my brother-in-law, Jamie. Jamie was out of sight in the alders over a rise from me when I heard two shots and a loud 'expletive' and this grouse came up out of the alders with its afterburners on at about 35 - 40 yards and high. I naturally swung on the bird and touched the rear trigger and the bird folded and plummeted.

Scott told me there were no pellet holes in the bird but there was a sharp bruise at the base of its skull. A lucky shot to be sure!

Just like a little chip off a clay target.... I'll take it!

What a great bird, I think I will get one mounted next season!
