Ladies and Gentlemen,
Its been a real great 1st part of the Grouse hunting season here in the Pa mountains. This year the 1st two weeks of Grouse season here at the training facility were reserved for close friends, and a few new ones who had never shot a Grouse before. Eric Miller and his father were up, Eric is our Chief Pa State Game Lands Biologist,
and he and his father are good friends, they have their camp, just over the top of the mountain top. My brother Kurt and his 84 Supplier gang from Tenn and North Carolina were in also. Lynn Dee owner of Fire Side Kennels in Vt brought her outstanding Ryman female, who is the mother of my latest Ryman male pup. My good friend Harold was up from Lancaster/Lebenan County Pa, Harold is the man who breeds our Weimar Grouse dogs, and my friend Jonny from just down the road graced us with her presience also. Ken a gun shop owner from Ohio made his 1st trip to our mountain facility and enjoyed himself fully. I thought you might enjoy some of the pictures of the different Grouse hunts and a couple here at the mountain home also.

Ken with Daisy, being presented with the very 1st Grouse he has ever taken, from Penny and Daisys fine Grouse set just minutes before.
Harold with a fine Grouse he took at some 50 Plus yards with his 20 Guage double gun, needless to say the old Marine Sniper shoots more than just his rifles very very well.
Ken & Harold close in on another fine Grouse set by Penny, the birds beat them this time.
However they don't beat the old man with the L.C. Smith Silver Breach 16 Guage double gun, even after he took the picture of Ken & Harold.
