Yesterday, I spent the day east of Cottage Grove in the Cascades. Ron Peach had dreamed of one day shooting a grouse. We worked hard, but ended the day with nine birds flushed. Four birds presented shots to Ron. All of the shots were VERY challenging and Ron was succesful in harvesting his first ever Blue and Ruffed Grouse.

Ron's first grouse, a gorgeous Ruffed Grouse.
Ron had so much fun chasing these challenging birds that he wants to do it again today. He also want's to see his first Black Bear, so today we're heading for the coast to find some more grouse, a bear and maybe even shoot a few ducks. Wish us Luck!
