Default Newfoundland Grouse 2022

Another great year in Newfoundland hunting with my good friend C. Dawe. Missing 2 COVID years made me forget how much work it is chasing grouse in the thick alders. To hunt here with Chris and his dogs, to become battered and bruised, and to enjoy this beautiful rugged country, I am blessed.

I hunted with my DH 20 gauge, 26” barrel, straight grip. Chris bounced back and forth from his custom Lefever 20 ga and his custom Belgium 28 ga.

Great pictures
The birds were brought here about 50 years ago I believe, trapped in Michigan and imported. No one hunts them with dogs, they think Chris is crazy. They shoot them on the road sides with .22’s and ground swat them with shotguns.

I keep looking at those great photos. Interesting country, and I see the frost has not burned some of the ferns yet. I also like the interesting tree (we have lots of tree pictures among our hunting photos) and the interior shot with the grouse hanging outside the window. Nice!

Newfoundland is a great place, we saw grouse while moose hunting, could have taken one with a rock! I had wished I had taken a shot gun, as we had time. We drove up, the ferry trip is an experience in itself.
