Chads First Ruffed Grouse
What a beautiful day. Temperatures in the 40s. Mountains practically to ourselves. And the pleasure of enjoying it all with a good dog and friend. Moved a few birds and Chad was able to bring this beauty home. Chad is an accomplished hunter but had never hunted ruffed grouse before and had never hunted behind a dog in the uplands. Hazel did great and showed him how great hunting behind a dog can be. I think I may have converted another hunter to this type of hunting adventure.
