Pa Grouse Hunting - 1st Part of the Season

Pa Grouse Hunting - 1st Part of the Season

Postby Ryman Gun Dog » Thu Dec 09, 2010 12:26 pm

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.

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.

Nice pictures. You might what to make sure your friends display their license. Plus I would hate to have the game warden pull up on you standing on a road without proper orange with a gun and bird! PA Game commision could make some money at your camp.

Mud,
The Pa Game Commission is always welcome here, Eric is the head PGC, SGL Biologist and we never violate any laws here.
The men you see without licenses on their back in the pictures, displayed them on the front of their vests, out of state guys you know. As for me, I was on private property with an empty double gun, after the hunt was over. Thanks for the advise however, if you are ever up this way stop in.

Yetinme,
I here you guys are getting some serious snow out your way, be careful as you hunt.
Sir I really like your Avatar picture, I would trade you anything I own to have a boy like yours, take care of him, and never take for granted what God has blessed you with.
Merry Christmas

Nice! Is that lodge a club? Nice looking place. I got back to grouse for a couple days this year, been to long! I think next year I'm gonna spend more time at it. Good to see everyone shooting proper bird guns!

Don,
My training facility and mountain home is not a lodge, although some I swear think it is. We train Grouse dogs here for men & ladies all over the USA.
We take no clients from this or any other forum, if you are a Wounded Warrior, Veteran or active duty Personell, you may use our facility free of charge, and we will help you train your Grouse dog, or teach you how to Fly Fish. This entire Grouse Dog and Fly Fishing business revolves around helping Military sportsman, as they are readjusting to civilian life, or are simply home on leave.

Don,
Ore is a long way from the Pa Grouse mountains, but if you ever get out this way look me up and we will take a stroll
thru the Grouse mountains, and you can shoot a couple birds. We will even put you up for a few night, for more than one hunt.
