Location of Hunt: Just west of Denver, CO
Animal Hunted: Blue Grouse
Were you sucessful?: Yes!
Weather, Wind, and Conditions: Sunny. lower 60’s with no snow. no wind.
Interesting Details of the Hunt: Hiked for about 4 hours along a trail in national forest land. Came across a group of 3 grouse…..shot one. It was about 15 yards up on the trail. Later came across two at a spring. Was able to shoot one there as well at about 10 yards.
I was just using a .22 with open sights. Hit both right the bottom of the neck for quick kills.
Both sightings were in fairly wooded areas with a lot of undergrowth and less than a quarter mile away from a stream.
