After multiple points and missed opportunities this was the first ruff that I was able hold up my end of the deal on for her.

She was a pleasure to hunt behind this past season and I'm
Looking forward to many more in the future.

Thanks fellas

Battue/ I actually have video of the retrieve. To say she was pleased with herself is an understatement.

For me this is what hunting is all about. I can't possibly tell you how much I enjoyed seeing your picture.

Tell her well done. Some pointing Dogs are not all that enthusiastic about retrieving. Encourage her to continue.

Gary I did the same with my Brittanys first Ruffed Grouse. For the rest of her entire life you could ask her about the bird and she would proudly run over to the fan and point it out to you grin

If you haven't already you'll end up bird hunting as much or more to watch the dog than shoot.

That's funny stuff man. I've got a little Brittany pup now. He just turned 4months old and is really learning to use that nose of his.


43, there aren't many grouse left in KY anyway. For me it's always been about the dog. I've had an obsession with this bird since my childhood just never did really hunt them. But they always made me smile when I flushed them.

But as a Muskie fisherman, sucky predator caller and grouse hunter, one could say I'm
a glutton for punishment. If I don't have to work for it, I don't wanna participate.

Thanks much Ribka.
