2023 Grouse dog clinics

The dates for the 2023 Grouse Dog Clinics are:
August 18-20th and September 1-3rd (Labor Day weekend). Rain dates for both clinics will be the following Fri-Sun of original scheduled dates. Come join the greatest grouse hunting and handling experience could have with your dog! At this time there is one dog team slot and one observer slot remaining for the August clinic. There is also three dog team slots and one observer slot available for the September clinic.
Over the years these clinics have been incredibly fun and educational for dozens and dozens of people. We love it being a small and intimate with everyone hands-on all the time kind of experience.
Everyone walks away with a lot more tools in your toolbox for hunting ruffed grouse and wild birds in general. We accept all pointing breeds of all ages. If you are looking for a way to become a more effective grouse hunter with your pointing dog then this is the intensive workshop for you and your hunting companion.
These events take place in the western UP of Michigan. All pointing breeds welcome from as young as six months of age to senior dogs.
Each day we allocate time for both field work classroom work encompassing: reading and handling your dog on the hunt, hunt strategy, scent theory & behavior, use of GPS, learning habitat, bird behavior, med kit supplies and use and having non-stop Q&A throughout the event.
Come and make your next hunting season the best season yet whether it’s your first with your pup or your fifth! There’s always a tremendous knowledge to walk away with from these grouse dog clinics. Even for those that mainly hunt other species across the USA, it’s an event that will have you expanding the depth of your toolbox as an upland hunter.
If you are interested in attending a grouse dog clinic this summer now is the time to reach out as we have limited space. I can forward you the informational flyer via email. Hope to see you there!
