Grouse: 2 vs. my pup & I: 0. Took my 9 month old pup (german wirehair) out this past weekend for our first grouse adventure. I have never been grouse hunting before, so it took some time for us to locate them. Once she picked up a scent it was on like donkey kong. She definitely bumped one and another flushed at 30 yds as we were coming to edge of a clearing. I looked in the tree tops but couldn't locate either of them. There are more then a few rabbits in the area, so I'm not sure if she was tracking the rabbits or grouse or both. Can't wait till this weekend to do it again.
