Default UP

Hunted my way into camp today. Hit all new covers.
I'll be up here for 2 weeks. Used the 20 hammer today, also brought along a VHE 20, and the 30 in Dickinson 28.
Shot at 4 grouse, killed 3.

Shooting percentage will always catch up to me, Garry. Moved 21 grouse and 1 Woodcock today. Few shots, shot at 3 grouse and got 1. Blooded the Dickinson 28 with 30 in barrels. Was over 60 today, had snow cover yesterday morning. Doodle found her a mud puddle to role in.

Harold, you seem to be having a great hunt so far. I hope you don't get the terrific winds and storms we are getting now. How's your flush rate? Those pups of yours look like they are "locked and loaded" for sure. There's nothing in all hunting quite like walking in on a point, is there?

Keep your posts coming...and be safe.

Another great day here, but now am by myself. My buddy Terry left this morning, after getting a lot of trail camera pictures of a huge buck he has been after. He is into bow hunting big deer like I am into grouse, so next 10 days by myself. I typically shoot a lot of birds when I am by myself--dont have to share points and shots. Went on a big hunt today, and wore myself and Willie out. Left the truck at 8:45, and got back at 4:00, and still didnt cover it all. The little G Forrester 20 hammer took 4 grouse--the limit is 5, and well, shoulda, woulda, coulda, but didn't .Almost ran out of shells, only had 2 in the gun when I got back. Didnt even shoot over the 4 WC points. The little VHE 20 has yet to be carried.
Talked to Brett Hoops today, he was excited as 1st grouse was shot over his young dog Red, by his buddy. S o happy he is out there.
For those that dont know, Brett suffered a life altering stroke last October. I have kept many of you in the loop, as Brett and I live less than an hour away, and talk frequently. He is carrying a walking stick instead of a gun, but is working hard trying to get back to some kind of normal.
I will post pictures by phone after this post.
