The nice mature side of me says "natures beauty, let it sit, and enjoy its presence", and the devilish immature side says "punch it" lol! Neat pics, and cool experience. I had a bird land on the end of my dads 7mm one time when i was ground hunting in some brush, it was cool.
Dad and I were hunting one time at our favorite spot. The hunting was not too hot so we headed back to the truck. The closer we got His license plate looked funny. I said what the heck is on your truck. Well it was a ruff grouse (fools hen is what we call them) I pointed my gun at it joking and Dad says don't you dare!!! LOL
I like the fact they aren't too smart because they sure are good to eat!!!:wink:
Back in 81, my father was driving the family up to Elliot Lake Ontario for a summer camping vacation. We had to stop the vehicle trice to gently kick the grouse off the highway..literally. We couldn’t believe it. They just wouldn't move, and he wasn't about to gun them down with the vehicle.
Thanks for bringing back that memory.
I had one around for two years, that could not be chased away. It would attack me when I left my cabin. I even squirted it with a garden hose and it came back for more. I finally got tired of looking over my shoulder wondering when I would be attacked, so I put a cardboard box over it and transported to my buddies cabin as a joke. It did not stay around his cabin long. I have pictures as is was quite a novelty as first but the second year it got aggresive. Weird!
