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.

Harold, you are an awesome grouse hunter. I can tell from your reports that you go at it with passion.

If we here in Northern MN get weather before the UP, expect cooler temperatures. it's back in the 30s this morning after 45 mph winds and storms yesterday. I like it cool, but not windy. I think the birds are like me.

So...have an awesome day in the grouse woods!
