White-tailed Ptarmigan Hunting Colorado Style

It’s been a glorious fall so far here in colorful Colorado.  We’ve been several times into the grouse woods this September in search of blues and mountain sharptails…we’re seeing birds and getting good dog work but I have yet to fire a shell.  My dogs have had some great points and my FB English cocker…

MEET THE AUTHOR OF IDAHO RUFFED GROUSE HUNTING

Greetings all! We are now in the thick of things in the Idaho grouse hunting season. Rainey and I have been out three times and have struggled to find birds. In three days, I had one quick snap shot at a ruffie that flushed wild. Of course, I missed! It was still good to be…

Happy birthday to my very best friend! Hope it’s a great day brother! Here’s the link to Andy’s awesome interview with Nick Larson. I’m very excited about Andy’s book coming out next month.

POOR MAN’S BONEFISH

Most of my life I considered the common carp as a trash fish.  I figured the namer of this undesirable fish mixed up the “a” and the “r” rendering it “carp” instead of “crap.”  I remembered a time when my brother Scotty and I were fishing on the Bear River below our home near Preston, Idaho when…

Double Guns and Colorado Merriam’s Turkeys

It was a strange year in the Colorado high country turkey woods. There was very little snow in the high country, so I expected the birds to arrive to their lek earlier than years past. So not true! I learn this year that the birds follow the green-up and not necessarily the snow melt. The…

PREORDER A SIGNED COPY OF IDAHO RUFFED GROUSE HUNTING: THE HEARTBEAT OF THE WOODS

As many of you already know, I am a ruffed grouse fanatic and love the excellent literature on grouse and grouse hunting. My favorite grouse hunting authors are Burton Spiller, Grampa Grouse, and George King, but there are so many others that have written wonderful books on the subject. For a long time, I have hoped to contribute something worthwhile…

PRAYERS FOR RAIN

“He sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.” Matthew 5: 45. Let’s get something straight from the outset: My pup’s name is Rainey with an “E” not just a “Y” like the weather. Admittedly, my first two Brittanys were Sunny (Upland Autumn Sunshine) and Misty (Misty Morning Sunrise) after certain aspects of the weather,…
