Don’t you have to the head on the bird until you get it home? 

You are correct.

Page 21,
"IT IS UNLAWFUL TO:
• Possess in the field or transport game birds
unless a feathered head is left attached to each
carcass, except falconry-caught birds."

Look on the "Definitions" page (pg. 16) under "Upland Game Birds" . "Grouse are not upland birds", the fether head rule does not apply to grouse.

Great info Ice. I wonder if a person could do this method on chickens?

Page 18 in this year’s regs:

IT IS UNLAWFUL TO:
…  Possess in the field or transport game birds unless a feathered head is left attached to each carcass, except falconry-caught birds.

Note the word “upland” does not appear in that.  Grouse are not an upland game bird but they are a game bird per WAC 232-12-004.  Maybe the regulation is not enforced but it is illegal to possess grouse in the field without a fully feathered head.
