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 dive deeper into the grouse dog component of the equation and the excitement of hunting ruffed grouse.

Show Highlights:

  • Bird tracking ability in grouse dogs
  • Tracking versus relocating…
  • Does the pace of the dog influence how much a bird runs?
  • Ideally, you work a track as fast as the dog can work it
  • Thoughts on approaching points
  • Grouse that don’t readily flush?!
  • Kyle’s trip to Italy
  • A new grouse hunting video series on the way
