A conversation about DIY sharp-tailed grouse hunting and relishing October days in the ruffed grouse woods.
Joined by friend and regular hunting partner, Ted Sommer, we discuss trip planning and hunting for sharp-tailed grouse. We reflect on our previous three annual trips to the prairies of North Dakota chasing birds on publicly accessible lands. In addition to sharp-tailed grouse, Ted and I share a passion for hunting ruffed grouse and woodcock which are inevitably weaved into any conversation we have whether we are being recorded or not.
Ted Sommer, aka @ted.the.surveyor, is a surveyor for the U.S. Forest Service on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. He resides in Northern Wisconsin where he takes full advantage of the public lands, waters and natural resources the state has to offer. He enjoys spending as much time as possible out of doors with his wife Sarah, two boys, Hans and Henrik and his bird dogs, Tikka (German Shorthaired Pointer) and Fitz (English Setter).
