My First and Likely My Last Traditional Grouse

Wow would you look at this. This guy was not flying but still at 40 yards through branches I had to snake the shot through. I waited till he got in the right spot. A buddy and I were walking up the hollow to do some rattling on November the 11th of this year and this guy jumped up and flew down into a fallen treetop. After four or five minutes I finally saw him on the opposite side walking away. The ole 62 Kodiak did its bit!
