hunted ne montana [scobey] last week to work my 10mo old field cocker buzz on sharptails and huns. season opens sept 1 so it is a good warm up before the michigan grouse season. huns were down from previous visits but we moved lots of grouse. they are having a bad drought out there and the birds have moved into the best of the best cover. it was a lot of fun, feel like my cocker is not a rookie any more and did a very nice job. he only weighs 23 lbs but he hunted 4 days full of heart without any issues, flushing and retrieving like a champ with tons of bird work. lots of state land and block management walk in land in this area with endless spots to hunt. just head west on us2 out of st ignace for 18 hours and you'll be there. the cover is easy to hunt no burrs or pickers, just need tennis shoes t-shirt and jeans.
