12 gauge shells usually fit in a 12 gauge

Exactly. Thus my displeasure with myself upon realizing I'd brought 20 gauge shells!

Thats what duct tape is for, just wrap enough around them to make them fit tight  :bdid: JKJKJKJKJKJKJK
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Just got back from an unsuccessful archery elk hunt in 560. Any suggestions on decent areas in the I-90 or Hwy-2 corridors (west side) for grouse? Ideally FS roads but not sure where to start.

Stay away from the main, big FS logging roads and hunt the smaller roads off those ones. Think skidder roads and roads that are more overgrown that one vehicle can fit down at a time. I like mid morning and mid afternoon better than first and last light for grouse.

Walked a road this morning that has produced birds in the past.  Found 2 but was only able to get 1 of them. First kill for my new mossberg SA-20.
