    Hi, I took my pup hunting today and got 2 dusky grouse. I can't wait to cook them up with mushrooms, garlic, noodles and some veggies.

    Here it is, pan fried with mushrooms sauce and broccoli with noodles. It is delicious. I can't wait to get a few more.

    ChefJeff, the before and after pictures are great! Congratulations are in order, I think.
    Good looking dog, by the way. I'd like to hear more about how you made your meal.
    I'll be hunting with a buddy over his young Brittany for Ruffs in a couple weeks.
    Viewing your pictures makes me want to be out there right now.
    Good luck on your next outing!

    for the grouse, breast them out and I soaked them in lightly salted water overnight. then I butterflied and flattened them out with a mallet, lightly, they're delicate.

    Then dip them in flour, then egg, then seasoned bread crumbs. Pan fry on medium high heat until nice and brown. remove to a warm oven.
    Pour off the oil and saute some mushrooms until nice, add a chopped shallot, chopped clove of garlic, crushed red pepper flakes and saute a little more.

    Stir in 2 tablespoons or so of flout and cook a few minutes then slowly add chicken or mushroom stock and simmer until thick and the flour taste is cooked out, about 7-8 minutes. Finish with parsley and cream or butter if you want.

    Noodles

    Broccoli
    done, Jeff

    Good job!

    I thought you said you didn't want to hunt birds?:)

    Griffon?

    Thank you for posting your meal preparation. Hopefully I'll bag a couple grouse to try it. On the other hand, may try it out with chicken first.

    I saw a couple Sooties in the Cascades a couple weeks ago, they are good sized birds. What size shot do you prefer?

    Stone, works great with chix too. I used #8 20 gauge but it is just what I had.

    Hey Bear, I had to get my pup into some birds, he's a wirehair pointer/flusher. He acts much more distinguished and mature now.
    I got a doe tag and a cow elk tag this year, same as last year. How about you? It was fun hnting those birds, I have to say. Now I need a nice upland bird shotgun instead of a mossberg pump.
