    This year is shaping up to be a better year than last. So far I have managed to bag 4 grouse, only one last year. Not much to say but I'll let the photos speak for that. One explanation, the grouse on the rock was not shot as it was on Association property and there's no hunting allowed. I do try to follow the rules even as tempting as it was...

    Rick, that is a good looking gun, but aren't those barrels a little big for grouse? ;) I need to get out and bag a grouse soon! I'm leaving for Montana tomorrow for the pheasant opening, so at least I will be pulling the trigger soon! Rick
