Bill Sherck hunts Michigan's public grounds for Ruffed Grouse & Woodcock. Wild flushing birds and haunting lights steal this show.
Lots of hunting this week. The dogs and I were all over the place looking for ruffs and roosters. Public lands certainly delivered.
This week we start with a couple wild pheasant hunts, have a great pheasant recipe and also do some open water bass fishing!
The week was 100% WMA action! Remnar and I went for a ruffs and roosters hunt on a giant area. The next day we broke the curse of a WMA where I have never shot a bird and lastly Daisy and I find a rooster on a WMA that neither of us has ever seen before.
Just another week of bird hunting. Some great hunts some not so great hunts and some in between. WMA's and WPA's. Gotta love late season roosters!
This week Steven, William, Jakoby and I found the highest amount of hunter pressure possible, A ruffed grouse finds the perfect time to make an escape, and lastly Steven and I go on a quick bang up hunt.
This week the shooting was not ideal and I was certainly "in my own head." I managed to find a few roosters and a ruffed grouse to boot.
This week I shoot a random ruff plus a rooster on my birthday, I head to a WMA and struggle but manage to bag a pheasants, and I end the week by taking Yao out for another attempt at shooting his first bird.
I spent an incredible three days hunting with Travis Frank of The Flush and Bob St Pierre of Pheasants Forever! We hunted both public and private lands and found an abundance of MN roosters! Be sure to watch for this episode of The Flush next fall!
I had a slow week of upland bird hunting, as the firearms deer season and some teasing winter weather come to MN. A few good points were had and a few roosters were shot...oh and wet feet everyday...
I shoot a ruff grouse while hunting with Jakoby. Later I meet up with some friends in West/Northish MN to hunt roosters. Tommy's ammo malfunctions but we still manage to get a few roosters. A ruff and roosters hunt turns into a skunk. And finally I get a limit of roosters by only shooting one....
This week I hunt with my friend Steven and he shoots his first ruff grouse and woodcock. Then I meet up with my new mentee Yao and for the last hunt Daisy and I shoot a limit of roosters on a Minnesota WPA.
The pheasant opener has come to MN! I've said numerous times that shooting a rooster and a ruffed grouse on the same day is a challenge I love to take on... this week, I did something right because the birds were going out of there way to get in front of me.... literally
Will, Jakoby and I venture into the great open grasslands of NW MN in pursuit of public land Sharptails.... not ducks.
