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.

      Had a jake come in at 6:25, thought it was a hen with it putting and cuts.  No gobble or fanning at all.  Caught us by suprise when we seen a little beard.  No bird for Abi yet.

      Finally made it out again.  This time with Abigail.  Bumped 2 birds on the roost walking out.  Hope they weren't toms or there are more near by!   Have heard a couple of gobbles in the distance.  Nothing close.   Good luck
