2021 Great Lakes Chapter Grouse Camp & Wild Game Cookout Wrap-Up
Here's a wrap-up from our first annual Grouse Camp & Wild Game Cookout.
The event took place mid October in Northern Michigan (what a great time to be in the grouse woods!). Big thanks to Great Lakes Chapter member Chad Hop for organizing the event and the write up and pictures below. I believe we had just under 10 people attend. One of the surprises was just how much of a culinary event this turned into. This has inspired us to add "Wild Game Cookout" to the event title. Hopefully next year's camp and cookout will be just as great.
Great Lakes Chapter Grouse Camp - Day 1
Not much to show in the game bags today. I think everyone at least flushed a bird today. Some of us had a few opportunities on grouse and woodcock but we weren’t able to connect. A couple of dogs got into porcupines this morning (nothing serious). We had a great field lunch thanks to Pat and Pamela S Loetz. That elk goulash was phenomenal! We’ll be back at it in the morning.
Great Lakes Chapter Grouse Camp - Day 2
We are on the board - 2 grouse and 4 woodcock were harvested today. A few more birds should have made it into our vests but that’s hunting. We had a fabulous lunch, courtesy of Alan Hogan. Those venison and bear burgers were delicious. Also thanks to Scott Lover for the sides to go with lunch today. I did fried walleye and French fries for dinner this evening. We’ve been eating well this weekend! We are going to give it one more go in the morning. Hopefully a few more birds will fall tomorrow and we can wrap up the 1st GLC Grouse Camp on a high note.
Great Lakes Chapter Grouse Camp - Final Day
Thanks again for those that came, Alan Hogan, Pamela S Loetz, Scott Lover, and Josh Logan.
