Overview

Revised edition cites up-to-date statistics reflecting the trends among grouse huntersIncludes a chapter of grouse recipes

Dennis Walrod takes beginning and experienced grouse hunters alike through an examination of key aspects of the hunt: how to get the most out of a covert, choosing guns and dogs, as well as concerns particular to autumn stalking or winter hunting. The emphasis falls on grouse hunting as a sport pursued for the thrill of the hunt, the adrenaline shot brought by the force of a flush, rather than the quest for impressive numbers.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Walrod, veteran author and hunter, believes grouse hunting is unique in its difficulty and in forcing the hunter to be alert to the surroundings. In fact, one ``hunts grouse by hunting habitat.'' The explosive flush, the tangled habitat, the bird's great speed and elusive flight, make the hunter count success by number of flushes rather than by kills. Walrod writes for both the novice and experienced, describing grouse bahavior, habitat, hunting methods, and recipes. He emphasizes that proper technique is hard physical work, but the joy of grouse hunting is related to the difficulty and is a major element in the sporting ethic. With a photographer's vision and a good writing style, Walrod appeals to naturalists and armchair hunters as well as hunters. Recommended for public libraries in upland game country.
