My sleddog/wolfdog mutt has decided he wants to be a serious grouse dog and he has even started retrieving. All of this on his own without any training! We've bagged 18 birds so far this season (3weeks).
Mostly been shooting them with a .22lr. Yes, it's legal. In timber they just flush into the trees and sit tight. I've found a few areas were they flush for good wing shooting.
I'd like a 20g. with adjustable chokes and was looking at the Stoegers doubles. Have a fixed budget and a better half who says "Why do you need another gun?.
I have a 12g. pump with a fixed MOD choke and a .410 with fixed IC choke. The .410 leaves me wondering if it's an ethical choice? So I think a 20g. fits the bill?
Opinions/insight would be great!
