    1. That’s two of the king”s birds and I just got another one, big as both of them put together. That’s the limit, headed back to camp.

  1. Awesome. ….I have flocks of chukars that roll through here.
    Eventually I’m gonna bag one.
    That’s after I get that antelope buck that keeps running around here.
    I hope they taste like chicken. ..with a slight hint of sage.
    Mmmmm mmmmm.


    2. Partridge or grouse, cooked properly, are superb. I love hunting them. That familiar “thumping” they have can send you in the right direction but don’t have a heart attack when you almost step on one before it takes off!

      1. Those surprises are most memorable.
        Well over 40 years ago, my Dad and I were snowshoeing to look for a place to fish on a river north of Duluth Mn. Out in the middle of nowhere, there was what looked like the fingers of a glove sticking out of the snow. How odd. I picket it up and it exploded out of my hand and the grouse flew away. At those times when I was still home, Christmas dinner was grouse and rabbit that had been snared. Congratulations on your catch!

      1. I beg to differ Tess. I’ll take a grouse any day of the week over a pheasant. Pheasant has more of a dark meat taste than grouse IMHO.

  2. They tried to get me last night…..
    But it’s amazing how people will disappear at 4 a.m.
    When you put a green laser dot on their crotch.
    I gotta joke for ya….
    What’s the difference between koyote and cow sht.
    About 2 feet around here.

      1. Yep….I’m still here.
        Now if you’ll excuse me.
        I have to go sanitize my mess from last night.
        Before they put the yellow tape up.
        And by the way….
        I’m sure glad that’s a grouse in the pic.
        Cause if it was a chicken.
        I think it’s getting choked.

  3. Nice! Some baby taters and a big ball jar of moonshine would make that meal complete! 🙂 Enjoy your weekend, I’m still packing.

  4. Well, I missed ‘morning’, obviously, but it is a good afternoon, so far (no chemtrails yet).

    Nice shootin’, Henry! 🙂

    I don’t suppose those things could be trained to attack communists. 🙄

  5. My Fellow Trenchers:

    Those are not birds in Henry’s hand,…. that’s one of Donald Trumps favorite hair pieces,…

    Oh-oooo,…. this must mean that Henry,……. (pause for effect…),…. BLEW DONALD TRUMPS HEAD OFF!!!!!! (Ta-Daaaaa!!!!,.Horns blaring,…people clapping,… balloons falling from the ceiling…..)

    BUT!!… But,… we all know ‘Ol Henry was just out Grouse hunting,… RIIIIGHT!!!???,… Right!….. (wink, wink, nod, nod….)

    JD – US Marines – “Why yes judge,… I do swear that I know Henry was out just bird hunting,… so it could NOT have been him!!!…”


  6. Henry,
    Sorry about the late evening reply.
    You look like you’re feeling much better than the last time I saw you.
    It looks like you are having a much better time, too.
    I’m jealous.

  7. Henry and Donald were in the woods shooting grouse when Donald fell down. Donald did not seem to be breathing so Henry pulled out his cell phone and called 911. When he got through, he gasped to the operator, “Donald is dead! What can I do?” The operator, in a calm soothing voice said, “Just take it easy. I can help. First, lets make sure he’s dead.” There was a silence from Henry for a few moments and then the operator heard a shot. Then Henry said “OK, now what?”

  8. You look pissed-off, Henry. Did you shoot that bird or strangle it?

    I think I have a bunch of them nesting alongside of my driveway, but I wouldn’t know what to do with a dead bird. I only know how to skin mammals.
