An incredible season thus far for our pursuit of the Ruffed Grouse! Not just in the UP but back home in the Catskills, where I often have countless hours of no bird contacts, we have not been shut out on a hunt yet. Below is a photo of our sire, Duncan, with one of our more recent Ruffs.
In other news Pixel is finally in heat and will be bred this week. You all will get a confirmation on that after it has happened for sure. That should put pups being born late January and going to homes late March. Obviously dates firmed up once pups are on the ground.
