Just breast 'em. Takes two seconds. Snip snip yank. Done.

do you use a spoon? I've been told that when you use a spoon it goes easy and fast.
Maybe DallanC should write some notes about it, not everyone is interested in the heavy big stuff Smile

Nice country. If grouse were easy to hit it wouldn't be fun. As the season progresses they will get even harder. What choke are you using? I use improved or cylinder in the same kind of dense cover. You can get slugs for your "smoothy" that retain a wad to stabilize them better in flight. I believe Remington makes them.

While it is not very likely you will be bothered by the bigger critters your dog may attract some unwanted attention. I was deer hunting with a guy who runs hounds for deer. This is legal in Ontario. We were covering a field where we figured the dogs were driving a deer toward when his hounds broke cover close behind a big doe. He had three dogs but a few hundred feet behind them was a fourth. A quick scope check and it looked like a husky but my friend yelled wolve and opened up on it with his rifle. No hit but the wolve shot back under cover. In discussion he related that this had happened once before but it was a pack that time and one of his dogs got mauled badly before he was able to frighten the wolves away. He explained that wolves are territorial and he believes they see the dogs as hunting competition and instinctivly go after them.

Mac, I generally use IC for the Ruffs. Rare to ever get a second shot off.
One of my buddies had two wolves walk up on him last week when he was elk hunting. Really got his adrenalin going.
They disappeared before he could get a shot. I do carry my 45 ACP . Not sure how effective it would be on a wolf. With the heavy cover here, everything is close range and happens very fast.
