Grouse camp

Just got back from eight days at grouse camp. Great time of year to catch up with friends I don't see often enough and share some good times in coverts and camp.  Thought I'd share a few photos.

Grouse numbers seemed to be way down this year and we flushed / shot less than 50% of normal years.  Woodcock numbers seemed to be on average.

My friend JC with his 8 month old English setter with her first pointed and retrieved grouse.  She had a great week at camp and has a lot of potential.





I didn't take many pictures in the field but have a bunch of us relaxing and eating.  A few lunch stops during the week.









Dinners...





Some interesting training areas on the military reservation where we hunt...





What tired bird dogs do after the first day in camp...

Fantastic photo's and I just love the English Setters  - probably my second favourite breed of dog (sorry a dane will always come first with me but for a proper working dog it would be an English)

Now that would be great fun

Great pictures Jim.  Tell me, is the high vis orange a legal requirement when hunting in the US?

It varies from state to state.  In New York state it's not a requirement.  We were hunting on a military base that requires a blaze hat and vest.  Due to the thick cover grouse and woodcock like, we always wear a blaze vest and hat for safety.

Appreciate all the comments on the photos.
