I now realize there is a section for introductions, whoops!
Thanks for the welcome, you guys are coolCongrats on the grouse and welcome to the forum!! No worries about an introduction post location - your first post is a dandy one!!
Hahaha. I’m anticipating plenty of days of getting skunked in the future, then I’ll be begging for helpYou're doing this all wrong. Your first post is supposed to be asking everyone where the birds are, then you never come back and post here again! Just playin. Congrats on the birds. It certainly looks like you are figuring things out.
No dogs, just two guys and 11 miles or so of walking. We saw and missed one solitary bird earlier in the day and about 4 hours later we took down these from a covey of about 12-15 birds. It was nuts, my friend and I each doubled right off the bat, and then rustled out 2 more at the end.Did you have dogs with you? What a good haul!
Welcome aboard! nice birds.
Thank you for this. I couldn’t tell the difference. These were the first duskies that I have ever harvested then. Crap! I would have saved a set of the tail feathers if I knew. I’m creating a display case of each species tail feathers as I accumulate it, so far it’s ruffed and sharptail. I need a blue.Great job, and yes those are duskies. They have the grey band on the end of the tail feathers.
Hope the hunt went well and I was just wondering, how can you tell? Now that I think about it, they were quite large birdsThey look like blues to me. Either way, awesome job! See a lot? I'm hoping to get out this weekend with my dad when I come visit him for his birthday.
