  • Enjoyed the podcast. Just purchased Dennis’s book will read it before he comes to Woodcock hunt with me in early January here in Virginia. Also the Passion for Grouse is a great book, I have read it slowly savoring each chapter….

    • Thank you for tuning in Darrel! I appreciate the feedback and glad you enjoyed it. Good luck in the woods when you and Dennis connect. I will be re-reading A Passion for Grouse this winter, that’s for sure!
