(imacdon with his four legged pal and the first grouse of the season)
Back when I used to pursue ruffed grouse, or partridge as I called them, small game season meant you finally had an excuse to stroll the backwoods trails at an incredibly beautiful time of year.
It also meant that moose and deer season were just around the corner.
Anyone else out after small game? Or waterfowl for the matter, since the duck and goose hunters are out now as well.
Simply put: FALL is the reward we get after struggling through the rest of the year! (awesome photo by the way..)
