Grouse season has been open since September 28th here in Vermont, but a combination of my kids’ sports schedules and a terrible cold had conspired to keep me out of the woods. So when my friend Steve Hemkenswho is also the director of Orvis Rod & Tackleasked if I wanted to sneak out on Sunday morning, I leaped at. . .
Here’s some great footage of a hunt for sharptail grouse and pheasants in Montana. There’s some fine dog work, as well.
Here’s some very cool hunting footage from the mountains of Norway, featuring whitetailed ptarmigan, willow ptarmigan, and black grouse. Apparently, grouse hunting is the most common shooting field sport in Norway, making up 90% of all hunting trips. The country is certainly gorgeous, but it looks like you might have to do some cardio training to get in shape for this kind of workout.
