    Grouse numbers aren't great, wolves are snacking on dogs left and right. But we'll try it anyway.

    Lord willing I plan to be in Wisconsin about Oct 21st. If things go well back again about Nov 11th. Don't know about the numbers but they will be better than here..lol.. Mostly interested in young dogs getting bird work and will be nice if I get a few shots.

    I'll be "up north" like every year. Bird numbers will not be stellar but better than here. Wolves are terrorizing entire villages of women and children. The usual story, year... after year... after year. All in good fun however. I hope.

    We'll be in MI on Oct. 3rd. Grouse may be down, but woodcock and ducks should be good.

    Leaving next friday for the U.P.Got some wild young dogs so we'll have the grouse flight conditioned for you guys heading up later.Even if they do happen to point one it still has a 95 percent chance of getting away.

    Our plan is to be in Phillips, WI from October 11th through November 2nd. When I was up there over the 4th of July, I left a now 15 month old female with may partner to start working as soon as season comes in this Saturday (she has never been exposed to anything but wild birds and this should give her 7 solid weeks of work on more wild birds), so hopefully I should have some current updates starting next week.

    Trapshooter, absolutely I know of a few good cuts around Morehead we could try. I bumped birds out of them during spring turkey season so hopefully they are still there come November.
