Yes Indeed Walleyes:

But maybe just a  description.  :)

How did it happen?

Did you have a winch, jack-all, snatch block, lots of pulling rope, beer, to figure out the situation? ;)

Any corduroying involved ;)

This is where I disagree with Walleyes. ;) :) :)

No Pictures.  They can haunt you for years.  And I think we all know that. :) :)

Every trip was an excellent trip. ;D

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the guy at Hinton Wreckers who hauled my friends and I over the years from some very bad situations and did not skin us monetarily  in tow fees and parts pulled from the yard in repairs. Very decent gentleman. :)

Looks good sonny, did the S&B help keep it moist? I usually find you need a bit of bacon fat or such to take the dryness out.

I have been thinking of buying a cheap pressure cooker for grouse to add some moisture to the meat.

Anyone on the forum given that a try?

Yes they were dry.

Wonder how they would taste in a homemade chicken soup? :-\

We usually make a grouse casserole of sorts.  We cut the breast meat into strips and fry in butter until light brown.
In a casserole dish add mushroom soup, red pepper strips, carrot slices, onion, and a bit of broccoli.  Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes.
Serve over rice or noodles.  That cures any dryness.

Right on Bill.

A Springer that hunts Alpine Boreal Timber Blocks. That is so so cool. :) :) :)

I have seen the shotgun folks from Hinton at the Edmonton Gun Club..of which I am not a member.

I have seen the Hinton gun club folks shoot most excellent scores with a shotgun.


Bring the dogs on.


Thanks for the pictures Bill and Speckle.

I had a Pheasant get out of the pen today, she retrieves them to both dead and alive. The one that she retrieved live she hunted down, caught it and brought it to the wife.

Thanks for the pictures Speckle:

Question: Did any of the ruffies have spruce buds in their crops?  I would think the ruffie's would be full of rose hips and the like waiting to be ground up in the gizzard.

The reason I ask this question is that I might wonder if block cutting might affect the ruffies's feeding behavior, in that they start to eat like a spruce grouse.

As for your closed road picture.  What did the road look like at the bottom of the hill. :)

lol... Yes I have done better than that.

Years ago I seen a bunch of chickens on the side of the road and I lined up with an old Ithaca (still have it) and I got three birds with one shot.

btw.... what do you call a bunch of chickens?

A covey? A flock?
