"I suddenly remembered reading that in the seventh century, the Church decided dogs can't go to heaven because they don't contribute to the church. If that's true, then I don't want to go either." -Jim Harrison -  Meet Harrison, a Llewellin Setter and new little brother to Tucker, brother by birth to Wyatt (@troutbum311 and @pattypansmiles), and future grouse machine. #llewellinsetter #orvis #orvishunting #birddog #ruffedgrouse @orvisgreenville @orvis @ruffedgrousesociety @project_upland #nationalhuntingandfishingday

Off to a nice start on opening day of northern NY grouse season. Bird numbers were low and it was hot as hell, but it was great being back in the woods with dogs, guns, and a new friend. @theadkrebel managed to shoot a snipe pointed by his puppy and made sure there was one less porcupine in the woods. #englishsetter #grousedogs #adkgrouse #orvishunting #huntgarmin

With weekend forecasts looking grim, @grouser12 and I decided to get out for an evening hunt yesterday (as if we needed much convincing). We agreed on a new spot neither of us had hunted before. It was a section of aspen I'd come across during my preseason virtual scouting. It had been cut over in 2006 along a gradual downward slope at the base of which was surrounded by a mature conifer and tag alder swamp. We found the edge of the swamp and stuck to it as we pushed around the entire cut. Ultimately we flushed 4 grouse and we each bagged one, including this old swamp bird I put down with the Fox as he made for the depths of the swamp #thenorthwoodsr #projectupland #uplandelite #uplandlowlife #ruffedgrouse #ahfox #16gauge #sidebyside #doubleguns #singleactionfanatics #minnesota #orvis #orvishunting #garminfishhunt #uplandhunting #wingworks #ruffedgrousesociety #wsisports #wsiprostaff #scoutnorth

We interrupt this upland bird season... I just want to say that whoever scheduled all these overlapping seasons for the same period of time in the fall really has a lot to answer for. .

Day one in the books, nothing in our game bags, but it was great to get back out there. Only flushed 2 grouse today, along with a bunch of woodcock.

It's time. Grouse opens in MN tomorrow. Best of luck to everyone out there chasing birds this fall 📷@project_upland #orvishunting #ahfox #sterlingworth #scoutnorth
On our last tune-up run before we kick off the season this weekend, Hartley had some nice points on a grouse and this woodcock. We also busted up a covey of at least 6 young grouse. Nothing left to do now but go hunt. Good luck to all of our friends and followers taking to the woods this weekend.

Maverick, John, and Rockie came up from Northern California for an April field trial held on the banks of the Missouri River. Mav is a pup from my Slater (previous post), so he got some family time, too. Here the visiting team is enjoying a little Montana evening ambience and finding a few pheasants along the East Gallatin, a Missouri tributary. Think they'll come back? @springersrulealways

Finally snuck back out into the bird cover today. Hartley displayed some nice dog work which resulted in 7 grouse flushed. I think 5-6 were juveniles including a covey of 4 which resulted in a bit of chaos. The excitement level has been elevated #thenorthwoodsr #projectupland #englishsetter #ruffedgrouse #uplandlowlife #uplandelite #garminfishhunt #garmin #uplandhunting #orvis #orvishunting
The cool breeze has us thinking of bird hunting and stacking wood - this men's shirt is rugged enough to do both while comfortable enough to sip a drink by the fire. Stop by to see this and many other great new fall pieces!

#tbt The Valley Quail, also known as the California Quail, arguably has the most beautiful plumage of all upland game birds. They offer small targets, as they rise together in coveys, which confuse and startle predators and hunters... and it works! They will often flush at about 30 yards plus away from a shooter or run through the arid hills and valleys, making them a challenging quarry for even the most seasoned upland hunter. 
Out on BLM land, I shot this single male last season  after I busted up a midsized covey. Instead of chasing after the singles, which flew in all directions. I sat low and called for about 15 minutes. I saw him running across a hill at about 25 yards or so with a hen quail. I sat up and jogged towards them, hoping to get them to flush and boy did they! Just in different directions! I shot at the cockbird first and folded him as he flushed to the left. I took aim at the hen flying to the right and my Ithaca 37 barked out two more rounds as she started veering out of range. Miss and a miss.

Determining the age of young blue grouse by examining the development of flight feathers: Primary #8 is less than 1/4 developed, #7 is about 3/4 developed, #6 is about 7/8 developed. This large, almost-full-grown bird was between 77-81 days old, hatched in mid-June. A seven-yr-old springer spaniel flushed the blue from a steep, south-facing slope, 6500 feet above sea level in the Bridger Range. A five-year old springer made a nice blind retrieve. The crop contained mostly hoppers, some snowberries, and a few Oregon grapes. If you would like to know how to age blue grouse, google "Zwickel and Lance 1966" for the article in the Journal of Wildlife Management. Other galliforms can be similarly aged--do a search for the species-specific table for your gamebird of interest. #knowyourfood #knowyourgame
