Video: Lunchtime Grouse Hunt in Vermont

<

One of the great things about having our offices located in the mountains of southwestern Vermont is that we have pretty much instant access to the outdoors. Last week, a few us of took a long lunch to chase grouse on a hillside behind my house. Orvis Rod & Tackle Manager Steve Hemkens brought his dog, Cayenne, and Eastern ELOG Coordinator Scott McEnaney brought Diesel and Ghillie. My friend Brew Moscarello, who owns Vew-Do Balance Boards, rounded out our party.

It was a little slow—we put up three birds but didn’t get off any shots—but the dogs performed well, it was a gorgeous day to be in the woods, and we all felt energized when we got back to work.
