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!

Ken

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.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
