Fritz, that is great advice. I have a frozen grouse that I use at times. I have been cutting wood and doing maple trees so I wasn't really expecting this amount of bird sightings this weekend as we walked but I will use the grouse as a reward. thanks

PSE,

When I take my dog out for walks at this time of the year, I take a dummy or frozen pigeon along.  If he sits on the flush, (springer) I throw it out for a retrieve as a reward.

kicked up 4 grouse on Saturday with the dog so I'm happy with that. Wish they held this tight during the fall.  today she locked up on six woodcock so that flight is coming through central wi. that was in the space of about 100 yards. good training. sorry I cant drop anything for her to bring back though.

Even though we still have a couple feet of snow yet in Northern Wisconsin I am starting to see some grouse out by the road edges. Actually have seen quite a few in the past week or so. That is encouraging.

Short season sucks.  Or maybe the nonstop deer season sucks.  Took my five year old squirrel hunting new year's Eve day. Seen a squirrel. Three Rabbit and seven grouse.  Had the 22.  Prime numbers the last couple years in my neck of the woods

Saw today on the WI DNR website https://dnr.wi.gov/news/Weekly/?id=672#art  that 3 of the first 16 grouse they tested for West Nile tested positive, and showed signs of the disease.   I'm not surprised there has definitely been a decline in numbers over the last couple of years.   When the cycle should be peaking.   The shortened season isnt going to make a hill of beans.  If the DNR wanted to get more birds to the breeding season they would make it illegal to road hunt.

Imagine looking at a bear head between your legs, looking backwards when you are about to sit on a mounded rise.  It happened to me while deer hunting near Drummond.

Our last hunt of the season was on 30th. Six grouse contacts.  Hunting partner shot one over a nice point from his dog.  Here is A photo I took just after I realized Ellie was pointing a black bear.   He had bedded down in a tag swamp.  Good thing my dog is obedient.  Gave her a stern whoa and then called her over.  This was a first for me.
