If you haven’t before go check out Anthony Ferro over at @fetching_feathers I pulled out my favorite parts of a beautiful prayer written by @jaferro85 that he recites before every bird hunt. In its entirety it begins to explain the loving relationship between a person, their birddog, and their connections to nature and God
One of my favorite photos of two of the greatest grouse dogs I’ve had the pleasure to hunt with in my 26 years of grouse hunting. This killer veteran team has their litter hitting the ground this week. Multi-repeat breeding. As proven as proven gets in the grouse woods. All spoken for. #grousehunting#grousedogs
Yesterday we made our first trip to the north woods of Minnesota to try our hand at grouse hunting. Our attempt was unsuccessful and my GSP Rusty met his first porcupine. Let's just say it's a good thing he is one tough SOB!! He continued to hunt on our mile walk back to the truck. Luckily we found a vet in Bemidji that got him in right away. He's now back to his normal happy self.
Ol’ June Bug on the lookout for birds in the Mighty Pigeon. I kicked up a ton of grouse while elk hunting here last year, so I had to come back for more. Unfortunately,the weather was better for Elk than grouse. #birdhunting#puremichigan

The grouse is just a bit paranoid , but with some good teamwork from Tiko, and great concealment with Prym1Camo, we got it done 😂 Å jakte hvit rype på snøfri mark e ikke bare bare, men d bei no en idag, etter godt samarbeid me Tiko og go camo fra Prym1Camo 👍🏻 @prym1camo @benedicteeroerholt #prym1camo#grousehunting
I’m a couple days behind in the #novphotochallenge. Saturday was self-care. Here’s my two favorite: hunting and baking. I’m wearing my dad’s hat. It was the last gift I gave him before he died. I have only killed one bird this season. But just going and spending time in the mountains on old logging roads gives me a time to think and reset my mind. I also spend the entire time talking to myself, which often feels like I’m talking to my dad and asking for his advice. I’ve been having a hard time lately heading into the holidays so ...
Ollie my new FB pup is reminding me a lot of Sophie my 1st French Brittany. They are a special breed, my daughter-in-law to be was very taken with her. She had me bring her to the wedding venue the day of the wedding to have her in the pictures. #frenchbrittanyspaniel#grousehunting
Went out with intention of hiking and killing grouse, while it looks like I did very well. It took me over six hours to find the three in the picture. Still a good haul, just had to work a little bit more! All the better. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #oregonhunting#scouting
