I always wanted to see these guys, but have never done so. Always in the wrong place at the wrong time, I guess. Today my wife and I decided on a whim to take the dogs for a walk in the national forest since it was too hot down where we live. Lo and behold we ran into 1 to 4 grouse 4 separate times over the course of a 2 hour walk! My plans to squeeze in with the teeming hordes on opening day of dove season and try not to get shot just got changed to looking for grouse. Anyone hunt these guys? It seems like at least half the time they do not flush, just amble away from you or sit still. Hunt with a shotgun? I was thinking about taking my usual 20 gauge with 6 shot and maybe a modified choke and carrying a revolver in case they won't flush. Stomp around the forest looking for likely spots or do something else? I probably will not be bringing a dog since one is gunshy and the other makes a ton of noise (beagle).
