Blue Grouse - A Big Bonus

Young Female Blue Grouse

Early Grouse season out west often means hot afternoons and a great way to beat the heat is to head into the high country for Blue Grouse. These big birds inhabit the high ridges and huckleberry patches in our western mountains. They are nearly twice the size of a Ruffed Grouse and heavy loads of # 7 1/2 or even #6 shot is necessary for these heavily feathered birds. Head into the high country to beat the heat and seek out these big beautiful western game birds.
