|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!
