A First Grouse Harvest

Recommended Posts

Dave

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

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
