Re: Grouse Guns?

well to start the season grousing i shoot the first couple with my 300wsm. just to make sure its shooting where its supposed to be. take there heads off and then get old painless out. my remington 870 express with the turkey choke on. yes i shoot em on the ground. the forests are thick here in wa state. aim at or above there heads with #6 shot. you would be amazed at the lack of pellets in the breasts. my brown lab takes over from there.

Re: Grouse Guns?

Gentlemen this is a game of sport using a shotgun and I shoot all birds in the "air". I shoot turkeys in Missouri on the ground, not in the roost OK.

My favorite pheasant gun is a 16 ga Belgium Browning with full choke. My favorite quail gun is a Remington 1100 in 20 ga. English stock, using improved mod choke.

Re: Grouse Guns?

I use my Benjamin Marauder Pistol in .22 caliber wearing it's carbine stock to take grouse heads off while archery hunting. I have turned my kids, my neighbor, and other friends on to taking them this way too. It is a quiet way to harvest camp meat while hunting for big game.


Winchester Model 70 Black Shadow in 300 Win Mag, all factory, shooting Remington Core-Lokt 180 PSP factory rounds. Shoots too good to try and "fix" it. Multiple one shot kills to 400+/- yards and one kill at 815 yards.

Winchester Model 70 XTR in 264 Win Mag with Nikon 4.5x14SF BDC running HSM ammo loaded with 140 Grain Bergers. Antelope killer!

Someday, a APS Raptor LRSS in 338 AX. Time to step up my game. Ordered 10/2011 and still waiting!
