I went for three days grouse hunting and I had a rare oppertunity for some great pictures. This first is Gretta and me.

My friend Dell, saw two birds in the shade of the tree. I swung gretta down wind.

This picture is one bird flushing and I am shooting.

In this picture you can see the bird circled in red.

The bird is running on her!

I shot this bird and I have pictures but I am only allowed 8 pictures per topic.
With that the hunt was over. Ron

Those pics rock! Looks like Gretta is fast turning into a good dog. Gongrats! BTW, do blue's taste good?

Great pics Ron!

Looks like you put lots of time in with the pup and its paid off.

My GSP often locks up tight when a cripple is running out right from under her nose. I've lost a few pheasants that way. Has anyone found a way to get a pointer to run down a cripple?

Its less a problem now that I moved away from pheasant country. Chuckars aren't as leggy.
