Belle And Birds 2015 Is Officially Over

Posted by Coalman , 01 January 2016 · 182 views

12-31-15I just couldn't let it lie. After those last few fabulous trips to the Lakes Region and hearing whirling wings in my sleep I had to give it one more shot, literally. So I begged, borrowed and stole a half day off work this afternoon and headed to the Swamp. http://i134.photobuc...e/Belle and ...


Grouse, God And Billy Goat Pond

Posted by Coalman , 27 December 2015 · 206 views

12-26-15Having moved quite a few birds last week above NH's Big Lake I had a week to study topo maps and Google Earth for a much anticipated return trip. The forester who originally told me about this piece suggested more than a few times that we visit the wilderness pond. I asked him what direction it was from the parking area. He answered "head sou...


Project Upland

There is just something about following my dog and taking my gun for a walk chasing the King of fall game birds I can't describe in words. Please take two minutes and walk in my footsteps with the Ruffed Grouse Society. http://projectupland.com/

Pittsburg, NH 12-12-15Six hours hunting. Flushed five partridge. all wild, shot one bird. Every good looking cover along the roads were trampled like a pheasant release site. Probably had something to do with the dozens of cabins for rent in Pittsburg. Miss Dirty Belly Belle http://i134.photobuc...y Belle/Bell...


Trail Camera Checks

Just because you don't have the proper deer tags in your pocket doesn't mean you can't still hunt with a trail camera. After my son and I shot our deer we went back and set three trail cameras. The cameras have been out since November 14th. On my first card check 11-25 there over 150 videos.The highlight being the seven pointer from 2014. Same r...


Last Day Of Deer Season Grouse Hunt

Posted by Coalman , 06 December 2015 · 268 views

12-06-15Being the last day of deer season I was thankful when we pulled into the vacant parking area. Not that we did want to share the deer, we were there to partridge hunt with Belle. Our two and a half hour hunt went far beyond expectation. We moved a lot of birds. Of those Belle flushed three doubles and a couple singles. The others flushed wild....


2Nd Choice State

I'm just a happy homeboy from Exeter, NH. I haven't traveled a whole lot but when I do there has been no place like home. I'm proud to be native NH. Walking behind Belle on a ruffed grouse hunt yesterday morning in Exeter and not flushing any birds my mind wandered to where in the USA could I relocate that offered the same or better than what coastal...
