A First Grouse Harvest

6 posts in this topic

My 11 year old with his first grouse harvest. I didn't know kids under 12 can bird hunt without a gun safety certificate, until another FMer posted a pic of his 10 year old with a harvest just awhile back.

So, another hunter is hooked now!

Way to go!

I remember my first grouse as a kid. Something I will never forget.

I remember my first grouse as well, with my dad along my side.

Now, I might take heat from this, but I hate to say it, where is your son's Blaze Orange? It is required by anyone taking small game, at least one article of clothing (hat, shirt) above the waist. I just want the young guy to be safe, and instill that from day one.

Lund4ver,

Good point about the orange.shocked.gif Actually, he was in the cabin when his older brother yelled for him to come out, since he saw it seeing by the driveway and he wanted his little brother to bag him. I guess with all the excitement about him getting his first grouse, old dad forgot to bring out the proper wear for a photo crazy.gif Thanks for the reminder.

Dave,

Not a problem...When I first started grouse hunting with my dad when I was 10 years old, Blaze Orange wasn't required....and that was only 18 years ago.

I am glad to see another young guy with that smile on his face. Nothing better, just waiting now for my two sons to be old enough to bag their first grouse each.

Seen many grouse by your cabin where ever that might be?

Saw a handful of grouse. Saw more grouse in prior months when we were just riding ATVs. Now that the boys are carrying guns, only a handful of grouse showed up. My place is eight miles east of Mille Lacs.

Flushed some grouse on public land and my 13 year old was, "daydreaming" he said. I remember those days at 13, too! grin.gif I'm not carrying a gun this year, haven't bird hunted for about 15 years; just walking with them and showing them what it's about. They seem to not get enough of hunting so, looks like I trained 'em good wink.gif

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
