We are out elk hunting and seeing 10-20 grouse a day without trying.  They are thick this year.
Big difference between seeing and harvesting. With the high population of predators and hawks the birds are spooky.
The only man who never makes a mistake, is the man who never does anything!!
The further one goes into the wilderness, the greater the attraction of its lonely freedom.

Going to work today was a bad idea. Nicely done!
What country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.

Good opener. Went to a spot I haven't hunted in a couple of years, found evidence of a good hatch and lots of birds. This one was No. 2 of the day (first one was popped with a pistol).
Shotgun a 20-gauge Franchi Instinct. Load a low-base No. 6 Federal.
