So I went hunting for the first time yesterday. I tried to hunt Grouse off a gated logging road at the top of the pass on I 90. A couple of mistakes 1) I brought my dog who is not a bird dog . He got to far a head of me and flushed two birds off the gated road before I was able to get a clean shot. 2) starting earlier I wasn’t able to get out till mid morning. I’m using a scoped Ruger 10/22 . Any other west side Grouse guys out there ? He are some pics of the terrain. Maybe I was up to high in elevation?
