Trails & Tramroads
Nothing can match the excitement and anticipation of starting out on a newly discovered trail or tramroad. Not knowing what lays ahead, the mind can race with the possibilities of a new covert filled with grouse and woodcock in a beautiful setting just around the bend or just over the hill. Often they lead to cuttings that are past their prime to be good grouse cover but once in a while you stumble upon a jewel of a covert with just the right age saplings, just the right mixture of grape vines, greenbrier, barberry bushes, and wild rose tangles and life is good for you and your dog. Here are a few of my trails and tramroads that lead to special places that fill my memories with the thrill of past hunts.
