Last Day of Wisconsin Grouse Season
I probably should have just taken one dog, but I couldn't see leaving one behind since it would be until next September before we got out again. They settled down eventually, and we had a wonderful last hunt of the year.
We did see/hear a half dozen birds, and lots of tracks, some fresh, others days old. I think dogs have a more difficult time scenting in the snow, especially when the birds are buried beneath the snow.
