Nick Larson is the host and creator of the Birdshot Podcast. He and his family, which includes a pair of English setters, reside in Minnesota where he grew up and fell in love with the outdoors. Naturally, his favorite pursuit is upland bird hunting dating back 25+ years from his humble beginnings as a “partridge” hunter. Today, he chases adventure across the uplands wherever his bird dogs and the people he connects with inspire him to go.

Ted Sommer joins the show to recap and reflect on our annual September prairie hunting trip for sharp-tailed grouse.

Show Highlights:

  • Ted’s opening day in the ruffed grouse woods
  • Sharp-tailed grouse cover and what we saw this year
  • Hunting the topography
  • Shooting slumps
  • Pointing on the edge of the world

  • Hello, I have been listening to your podcast for the last couple of years and I really enjoy it. Question, on your trip to South Dakota to go grouse hunting, were you in the Fort Pierre National Grasslands or on WIA lands. I’m heading out to the FPNG on 10/7 and I’m worried since I have never been out there that late.

    • Hi Doug,

      Thanks for listening always appreciate the feedback. I have not hunted on the FPNG actually. I’ve only been to South Dakota a couple times in November and December.
