Dang! and my shoulder is actually a little sore.Anyhow Been texting with GrouseH100 and I felt bad for him as he is having no luck and I had it in mind that If I saw him out there I'd have him tag along for a hunt and show him waht to look for........well.............
I Left work an hour early and hit the hills and found a single bird bam! as I was walking back to the truck I heard some birds and low and behold I saw several birds bam! ...bam! two more down and me running out of the woods back to the truck to get more shells.
So I sneak back in there and birds start busting out of there and flushing like mad....bam!bam! bam! reload bam! bam! bam! click. Well I peppered a bird or two and dropped 3 more.
So I find a couple of them and decided that was enough and went back to the truck to off load and head abck to search for the downed birds.
Checked the time and its been 20 minutes and I had a missed text from GrouseH100 (Ryan) I call him up and told him to hightail it to my location as I'd hook him up on a crash course in Grouse hunting 101.
All I got to say is he smelled purdy and I explained a few things to him and that I wanted him to shoot the birds.
right off the bat as where beating the brush Ive got a Grouse 20 feet in front of me and told Ryan to run over to me quick so he could shoot it. I had to laugh as you could see he wanted to shoot it but couldnt see it.... Finally he did lol! BAM! one for Ryan wahoo.
As we get together I explain to him what,where and what to do next and off we go with him spotting one running BAM! two down and a few flush and fly off.We kept at it with me guiding Ryan on our approaches which seem to work as he kept spotting them now.
yeah we lost a few birds in all that thick stuff and he did managed to get two more.It was cool to take a rookie out and see him do good. All in all I didnt shoot any birds with him and he managed four total and me with 6 more.
Ryan it was nice to meet you and you did good with me telling you what to do and when to move (sorry) I just wanted to line you out and make sure you got birds.So what the wife say to all those birds? hahahaha!
