Grouse 3- Me 0

Secret Minnesota Grouse Trail


Every year, it's the same thing.  For the first few days, those wiley grouse kick my butt.  Ace, Ruby and Cap all did a marvelous job.  Ruby pointed 3 birds.  On the third find, the bird got up and flew directly away from me high and down the trail.  I calmly lifted the gun, while mentally putting the bird in my game bag- and missed!  I was tempted to start a little "Navy talk" right there.  But I resisted (remembering PSR) and gave Ruby a lttle love on the trail.  The other two finds, the birds got up too far out for shots.  You look out boys!  We'll be back tomorrow.  And we'll be ready!
