The birds have all of my attention
September 15, 2021
I’d pretty much given up big game hunting and turned all my attention to birds.
There were a number of reasons. I could shoot something every day for one. And if I was successful it didn’t take days to pack out the meat for another.
But this season is different. Blame the drought or the heat or a combination of the two, but hunting birds lately is starting to feel more like an elk hunt.
Over the first three days of the season, I saw one grouse and he appeared to passing through.
I’m hunting my favorite places, places that in the past have always held birds. Not this fall, however.
