Sharptail primer: hunting “America’s bird” … how, where, when, and why

January 5, 2021

I'll cover their history, our heritage, places to go and how to hunt them. From Gen. George Armstrong Custer to Theodore Roosevelt National Grassland I’ll give you starting points, some guide-tested unorthodox tactics, and explain as best I can how “America’s bird” thinks and behaves.

We'll cover prime habitat and hunting in a circle, using dogs as blinds, where to go in South Dakota (and other states); I’ll give you a jump-start on chasing these fascinating, native birds. Best dog breeds, equipment and shotgun recommendations, too!

“Handle It” covers the dilemma of hunting two dogs simultaneously – the up and downside. I’ll suggest a ruffed grouse hunt in the Northeast Kingdom, and it's all brought to you by:
