I don't have a dog to use so I was wondering what the best stategy for hunting sage grouse is. The seasons are very short and I would like to get a couple in case the hunting of them ever comes to an end.
I hunted one day this year and actually saw 3 groups by walking the draws in unit 211 of Colorado. But every single one of them would flush at around 40 yards or more. And of course with my vast skills I easily missed.
Am I on the right track and just keep pushing for them? Other than sage where are the best areas to hunt them? I did see some in Wyoming that refused to fly and even went under the truck but of course the season was not yet open.
