The King of the Upland birds. James River Ruffed Grouse camp November 2019 in monterey virigina. Friday was 16 and hunting in snow. Sunday was almost 60. You have to walk and have good dog work to find the birds.
Michigan and upper peninsula grouse camp 2019. my new personal best of harvesting three kings of the upland birds in a day!
Skylar I want to point another Ruffed Grouse dad.
This was the biggest Ruffed Grouse I harvested and she was missing a large portion of her tail.
Skylar Queen of her domain. She had a gorgeous point over a pair of Ruffed Grouse. I really should have more photos of Kona this trip. His furthest point was 175 yards thru very high stem density aspen and he was still on point when we finally got there.
Not bad for two guys from NC and VA. We averaged 15 miles a day of walking and just over 15 flushes a day in Michigan.
Chips first red phase ruffed grouse taken in 2017.
I could not get over this grouses tail and how pretty. I was honored that Jackie Hutwagner made this the CEB-US cover photo for the clubs Facebook page.
Often hunting is "just a walk in the woods with friends and good dogs." November weekend 2017 with Josh Legg and Jenni his liver tri color French Brittany. Kona is the OW dog.
