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.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
