Anyone hunt grouse or other upland on horseback?

4 posts in this topic

Just curious if you use dog(s), get off and shoot or stay in your seat? Told the wife the next one she trains I would like to try painting blaze come grouse season and hit the trails. I think the dog would be rather confused the first couple of times since she thinks they produce doggy treats and run in circles for a living...

I've never hunted off horseback, but there are plenty of horseback trials in MN and the Dakotas. In the prairies of ND they do some horseback hunting for sharptails and pheasants and huns. I would love to try it.

Strap yourself in...you don't want the horse to take off when you touch off a round on a ringneck.

My wife does it all the time. She has three of our shorthairs trained to heel to the horse. Funny to watch as they are coming down the road. When the grandsons are here in the summer they ride with her. When the dogs go on point she rides up there put him down, he runs over and flushes the bird then grandma hoist him back up and off they go looking for another one. Great work out for the dogs. PS this is a late summer/ early fall persuit to avoid the babies.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
