When i was 15 I spent two months worth of berry picking money to buy a brand new Savage model 24DL 22LR/20GA 3" chamber.  I shot the head off of a lot of grouse with open sights and that gun when I was a kid.  :tup:  Rarely used the 20GA, 'cause even though I was deadly with the rifle I couldn't hit anything with the shotgun.   :yike:  It's still in the safe, but I don't use it any more.   :IBCOOL:

Between the two of us we have one good gun. I can't hit much with the .22 barrel on my 24.

Probably use my ruger mark III now that it finally got bloody. It's the only gun I have successfully killed anything with. 

My fear with grouse is actually my own death, it's pretty rare I see those things until they are flushing right under my feet.

.16 gauge shotgun
similar to this one pictured.
Of course my dad using .22 bird shot killed a grouse a few times with his .22 pistol. If I did it I'd take my dads old .22 rifle loaded with bird shot and LR.

Gonna be using my new Buckmark this year, my wife just gave it to me tonight for our 1 year wedding anniversary! I'm super stoked, I saw this model with the aluminum bull barrel about a long ago on sale cheap, and didn't get it.

See my earlier post. Best little grouse gun I've ever owned. Accurate as hell and fun to shoot.

Im cant wait! Gonna be trying out my new .22/.410 over under! Its a funky little gun made by Chiappa. Nothing too fancy but its fun as hell to shoot!

That aluminum barrel buckmark is beauty. I also love shooting grouse with my bull barrel MK IV ruger. I have a thing for 22's!

I've taken more grouse with a Ruger Mark II target model than any other weapon, second would be archery with a 1/2" washer behind a field point (poor man's judo).  A fair number with shotgun, a few with a .30-06 (crosshairs just above the head, otherwise you'll blow it up).  One each with my everyday carry .380s, a Ruger LCP and Sig P238.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

First 1 of 2017. As blues love to do he flushed and flew to a nearby tree. Popped him in the lower neck on the 2nd shot at about 50 yds.

Anyone use a suppressed .22?  I'm thinking that would be the ultimate grouse getter.

Not yet, but hopefully soon.  Planning on taking my 22/45 with red dot and suppressor along for the ride this fall whenever I can get out.

Never owned a shotgun till this year. My dad started me at 8 with a marlin mod 60 and I killed everything with that gun till I bought a buddy's savage MKII and killed em with that till a few years ago. Now I've got a Chiappa 22/410 that took 2 dozen last year. 3 this year.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen
