It's still a little bit warm here but yes in only a week and a half ruff grouse season opens. I swear the dog knows it too. While I was a big fan of purple shells and a pointer growing up when I was younger I now hunt with a flusher. Allowing myself to throw all etiquette to the curb and stack my pipes OU, with the if it flies it dies rule of thumb. I have a good friend which I will spend several weeks with once again this year who has 3 FB, they all have a set of wheels on them. Great dogs. Can't wait to see pics of your Britts. Good luck!
Enlighten me, what breed do you mean by FB?
Wrap the breasts in bacon and grill them. Serve them with roasted sweet potatoes or some celery root and copious amounts of wine or beer. They are a little too small to prepare like squab but they have a very rich flavor. I dont find them to be the least bit gamey. In fact they have almost a liver consistency although they are milder in flavor than liver.
