Grouse are not hard to kill,
Tell that to the Grouse I hit this weekend,  center punched him @ 20yrds with 2 .22HP . He still flew away . Now I'm looking for a 20 G :chuckle:
i picked up the stevens break action 20 gauge at outdoor emporium for like 130 bucks. great little truck or camp grouse gun  :tup: :dunno:

7.5s worked this evening.  Put him in the instant pot over a bed of apples and onions.  Pretty tasty and very quick.

Cheapest 7/8 7.5 shot with a ic choke works fine on both ruffs and blues for me they are not that tough.

My shots are always pretty close though hard to get a long shot in the areas I hunt.
