Podcast: Grouse Hunting and Wingshooting Education in the Catskills


Written by: Phil Monahan



This week, Reid is joined by Rick Watson of Catskill Casts and Coverts to discuss the newly-hatched Grouse School, which will be offered in conjunction with Orvis this fall. Rick has assembled a team of guides, biologists, conservationists, and avid hunters from Orvis and The Ruffed Grouse Society to lead students through a progression of lessons that will enhance ruffed-grouse hunting success. From identifying likely cover via the internet and maps to understanding the habits of ruffed grouse to implementing the Orvis instinctive method of wingshooting in the grouse woods, this course promises to enhance the grouse-hunting experience for all involved. Rick and Reid discuss the course and the unique opportunity it can provide.
