Thoughts and pictures of my wanderings through the Allegheny Mountains hunting grouse and woodcock with my Ryman-type English Setters during the fall and winter months, fishing for smallmouth bass in local streams and rivers during the summer months and wandering over my 66 acres of heaven year round.

Emma did her Part........but I Didn't
After a couple of hours of searching for woodcock with no luck, I decided to head for higher ground and look for grouse. We finally found the grouse. The first 4 were wild flushes but the 5th one held for Emma and I moved in for the flush.
The grouse sailed down the ridge through this cover evading my two shots.

Back at the truck Emma asked for her share of the sandwich, which she had rightfully earned.
