Great time in Vermont

Postby ROMAC » Thu Oct 03, 2019 10:12 am

I took an early road trip to Vermont for Grouse and the Woodcock opener. Weather was great until it wasn't. Very typical to have the weather change on a dime up there.

I was using the 16 gauge Sterlingworth/XE upgrade that I purchased from C.O.B. a while back. It's one of my favorites.

It is still early and the foliage was very thick, but we did get flushes, some we even saw! LOL! We stuck to the edge cover adjacent to snow mobile trails for a good bit, that seemed to be most productive.

I was on a logging road facing a creek bottom when I took this grey phase on an incoming path quartering away from my right with the second barrel after missing with the first.

She did a beautifully choreographed somersault in the air and landed with a thud about 20 yards to my right just on the edge of the two track. Watching the bird in flight was worth the 9 hour drive.

Nice shot, Roger. The shot (picture) of you is great too. Nice to see the old time wool shirts out hunting!

A wool shirt .............. and we are sweltering under 100 degree temps here in GA. I'm envious, Roger.

We couldn't get any further north!

We woke up to 38 degrees moving up to low 60's in the sunshine mid-day.

Sorry for the sideways pictures!

Roger, great pics and your details painted the picture of the shot nicely as well! I’m so envious of your XE upgrade. I saw that when COB had advertised it but you beat me to the punch. Glad she’d doing what she’s supposed to do!!

Great post, Roger! Got to get my brown plaid version of that shirt of yours out and ready for next week's grouse adventure in NY State - hope I wind up with something to post as well! Kevin

I finally had the chance to resize some of my pictures.

These were some of my favorites.
