>Only six more months until September…the caddis flies will soon be hatching on the Arkansas River, but give me blue grouse country in September–Colorado style. Blue grouse country was made for big going pointing dogs. It’s not for the faint of heart…as many of the family coveys will be found at greater than 10,000 feet above sea level where oxygen can be scarce. Most coveys can be found on public lands where the limiting factor is your stamina and dog power. Make sure to bring a lunch and enjoy God’s Country. When you finally find a family group after hours of hiking, remember to limit your take instead of taking a limit. Don’t let the weight in your game pouch determine your level of satisfaction.
Below are some of my favorite photographs of Colorado Blue Grouse Country! When I’m in that phase between sleep and being awake each evening, Colorado Blue Grouse Country is the place I visit.
