Springer for grouse?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone use thier springer for grouse hunting? How are they for grouse normally? I don't hear of too many people hunting grouse with a springer.

I've only hunted grouse behind one springer and he did a fantastic job. He was trained to quarter within 15 yards of his owner and he would natuarally slow down when zeroing in on the bird before the flush.

I have a buddy who just bought a springer pup and he intends on hunting some grouse with his pooch too.

Good Luck!

I hunted for a few years with a Springer and a Lab together. Great nose on the Springer and the Lab loved to retrieve so it was a good combo. I now hunt behind a pair of Springer/Lab mixed and yes you guess it they are sons of the Lab and Springer.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
