I'll be taking Rowdy out to Eastern Oregon in early/mid September to hunt wild sage grouse. We're allowed to shoot 2 per year after we apply and I was drawn for my preferred unit. It will be interesting to see how it goes. He's super birdy and will whoa every time (although with live birds in front of him it may be a different story). Either way I'm excited to get him some exposure to wild birds. He'll be hunting dove on the first of September as well.
