I am an upland hunter....


Recommended Posts

I too started out hunting grouse with out a dog. It is a great way to learn about the birds, where they like to be and when they like to be there. Keep at it you will get better at both finding them and shooting.

Can’t be you.  It must be gun fit, LOP, drop at comb, drop at heel, pitch, barrel orientation, single trigger, double trigger or your mount. No one on UJ is a poor shot, it’s always the gun.

And I suck at shooting! 

You are in good company. 

I can't remember where I heard it, but the philosophy I've adopted is pulling the trigger is the cheapest part of upland hunting.  After the dog, gear, upland rig, divorce lawyer and appropriate shotgun so you can join Upland Journal what's a couple of $$ to pull the trigger and let it fly (safely of course).  It makes the misses much easier to tolerate.

As an update.  Had my chokes opened up from extra full to improved cylinder.   Haven’t missed since.  I’m sure I’ll jinx myself but have yet to pull the second trigger since the gunsmith worked his magic.

Just buy a new gun, that’s what I do.  Its not your fault, it HAS to be the gun.  I have several dozen and still can’t hit anything!

This island isnt so lonely after all... My pup has put up grouse and woodcock every trip and I have yet to hit one.  I can't imagine what she would say if she could only talk lol.
