    Went out for a quick (2 hours) Grouse hunt this morning. Got three nice Ruffs and a Mourning Dove. It's very uncommon to get a Mourning Dove at 4000' altitude and because of their diet, they taste diferent than a low-land bird. It's been so hot and dry here, that most of the grouse are still waaaay back in the deep woods. They come down to eat and get gravel -- then it's right back to the tall trees to stay cool.
    When it cools off here and we get some rain, (usually in another month), there will be a lot of Grouse.

    Will be going out for a short Dove hunt later this afternoon.
