Our hunts for wild grouse and woodcock are generally flat to rolling uneven terrain in thick cover. This is a challenging hunt and busting through heavy brush is not uncommon. That being said once you experience the romance of perusing the "King of Game Birds" it becomes addictive.
Weather can vary drastically throughout the season. Most important is a comfortable water resistant pair of boots. Rain and cold weather gear is also a must.
Single day and half day bookings are welcome although we recommend at least a two day hunt. These birds being wild daily numbers will fluctuate. Multiple day hunts will give you a better sampling of the hunting in our area.
