Hosted by
Nick Larson

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.

Joined by Kyle Warren of Paint River Setters, we discuss some of the subtleties of hunting ruffed grouse and grouse cover as the season progresses.

Show Highlights:

  • El Nino late season conditions
  • Cold weather scenting conditions
  • Thoughts on grouse roosts and poop piles
  • Exploring and scouting versus hunting known covers late season
  • If you can see good grouse cover, you’re probably standing in grouse cover even if it doesn’t look like it
