    There is a good article in the Aug-Sept Nebraskaland about the Sharptail one box hunt here in Mullen. This year the weather was about as bad as it gets with high winds and a driving rain but teams that were persistent were rewarded.

    I would love to get after some grouse sometime. I had a guy that was supposed to take me this year over by burwell, but he backed out. Hopefully next year though. Cool pics. I love the sandhills.

    I've been hunting in the eastern grouse zone. I've seen a few but they are extremely wild.

    We were out and had a two man limit on saturday. Not as many birds as last few years but still a good time anyway.

    Just thought I'd post a few pics from the weekend's hunt. After running through a nasty hailstorm on the way out, it was a beautiful weekend.
    A couple shots of the area we were hunting.








    Getting in and out was almost as fun as the hunt.





    Stopping for a much needed drink...




    How much better does it get than walking over a ridge to see this?





    This is Ryan, known on the old forum as "tucker" and his GSP, Tucker with their reward of the first day's hunt.




    And lastly, Fritz and I with a couple chickens.

    I would say that there are alot more chickens and grouse that pheasants. I hunted around Atkinson last year and only seen maybe 4 pheasants the entire trip.

    100's of grouse

    I think that there are better populations north of Scottsbluff, but we never seem to get up there on those quick trips.
    Regardles...you ought to chase something when you out there that you can't really chase around here. :zthinking

    I just don’t make it out to the panhandle often enough to go after any grouse, and when I am out there I’m usually chasing some pheasants with my uncle since he only gets out hunting once or twice a year anymore. Would like to find a place out there, though, because the pheasants are pretty scarce out there by mid season.

    Yeah really...you never have much luck with ditch parrots out there. You should find a good place for grouse and pchickens...that would be pretty cool.
