Grouse Camp

     We were lucky and spent the whole month of August up at our place in grouse country. We did a lot of hiking and found some new bird cover. You can never spend too much time in the woods.
     Now we’re back home and the days are getting noticeably shorter and the air has a little nip to it. Fall is knocking on our door.

     So I sit and look at the calendar, trying to figure out how to get the most hunting out of the pitifully short seasons we have. The biggest priority is days up grouse country. I’m trying to block out two weeks, but not sure if the bank account can stand it.
     I’d like to catch a little of the early duck season here at home, but that’s a low priority. Some years it is spectacular and other years…well forget about it.
     I’ll be up north for opening day, I know that, and within the next few days I’ll have to decide when I’ll go again, probably late October and maybe into November.
     This working for a living just gets in the way of fun!

  1. Agreed Jerry. Sure would be nice to have the entire season off. I have books 3 grouse hunting trips to Northern Minnesota so far. I am heading up Sept. 21st for 4 days and then I have 4 days the first week of October and 4 days the third week of October. I sure hope to get a few weekends in November, but you never know with our weather what you will be in for. Good luck this season man. Can't wait to read up on how you do.
