Grouse

I know waterfowl and turkey can see color but what about grouse can they see color too?

i dont know but they sure do fly fast

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Only shot one. That was a blue grouse in Colorado and that was for emergency food. Single shot 20 gauge and I was hungry. All I can say is juice the meat well, they get dry, and use something larger than #8 shot.

I have always used #7 1/2 in the chamber and backed that up with 2 high brass #6 in the tube. That way you have the reach for a 2nd shot or a multiple flush. As far as the shotgun, whatever you are comfortable with. Modified or Improved Cylinder choke. I shoot a Mossberg 500 pump
