The 2011 grouse hunting and guiding season is over but not forgotten. For everyone at Bowen Lodge, it was a great fall. The majority of days were sunny and warm and the woods were very dry. The guides definitely needed to know the location of beaver ponds so the dogs could drink and cool off.
There were fewer grouse than last year but plenty to make for good hunting. The dogs did a tremendous job of finding and pointing them--but some were more difficult because there were more old grouse than young. A high note was the good numbers of woodcock we found--more than most years.
All-in-all, we had a wonderful fall with beautiful days, good friends and fine bird dogs.
