    Was out yesterday at around 6000 ft. Saw a few did not manage to get a shot. Dog was on them and I did not get set up for a shoot. My fault. Man it was hot!

    Looking forward to cooler weather

    Berries just starting to ripen.

    Got 1 ruffed Sat. morning in Leclerc creek area. I think the spring wasnt to nice to the hatch.My weapon of choice is an old Stevens .22/.410 OU with a pistol grip we have called the "grouse charmer" for years with good reason. 3" #6 shot seems to work great for me.Good luck to all!

    The dog and I have nothing to show for two days in the woods.
    First day on the North Fork, hunted the edges of the cuts...didn't see a thing.
    Figured I needed more elevation, went to the area above Lake Kachees, again, nada.
    Glad some others are having some luck.

    Finally got some!...not where I'd expect, either.
    Got to let the dog do her thing!

    Went out this morning on the westside and it was a total bust. I saw one ruffed and didn't get a shot. Last year at this time you had to beat them off the road with a damn stick
