#119 | DIY Trip Planning and Sharp-tailed Grouse Hunting with Ted Sommer

Ted Sommer sharp-tailed grouse hunting

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.

  • Nick, I really enjoy your podcast. Particularly the episodes that provide helpful information for a new hunter. Although I’m 40 this is my first full season with my first bird dog. I own 20 acres in the UP and primarily wander the grouse woods.

    Any and all episodes related to dog training would be appreciated. Also, your recent discussions on the prairie have got me scheduling a trip to SD in a couple weeks

  • Nick. I have some people that would make great interviews. They are incredible Chukar hunters. Let me know and I’ll try to get you in contact with them.

  • I just listened to this and a GSP breader in Michigan was mentioned. But I can’t remember what the name was. Can you let me know?
