I bought a couple of mounted ruffie’s yesterday. One is copper tailed and the other has black feathers. Neat to see the differences

Beautiful grouse - reminds me of silver and gold !

Lots of ruffies here , they live in the yard and anyplace . I like to plant and encourage native plants and berries that they like, wherever I have lived.

Blue grouse here too, just higher up.

Beautiful display !

Love ruffed grouse. Favorite bird to hunt. Super challenging to find, and hit on the fly. I spent a ton of time hunting them in MN. Miss them here on the KP!

Beautiful!!! And Tasty !!

I can't count the times one has scared me to death while snowshoeing. How many times in deep cold have you kicked one out from under a snow shoe ?? Really gets my heart started !!

Interesting how the tails of different birds are different colors. I have several fanned and dried on the cabin walls

The main researcher on fleas in Canada actually died that way as well when he was deer hunting in southern Ontario was not found for three days. may he rest in peace.
it took three years to finish his manuscript after that.

Here is another variation of a copper phase. I shot this one a few years back, definitely the nicest Ive ever shot. Should have got it mounted. Have shot a few more since then, but they didnt seem to have the full colour like this one did.

I was out at the house of the gentleman who does the birds. He has an amazing collection. Also been a trapper since 1950’s [Linked Image]

Hmmm. More grouse than I've ever seen in one spot in my life - and thats saying a lot. Makes me think... Grouse Fetish. Never heard of anyone with a grouse fetish. Unique. I like it! grin

The tails are quite fascinating. I have always collected and admired them.

Tried to find some Alaska ruffles last fall. Didn't do so well.

do you have a picture of the face side of that white wolverine? looks like a crappy red fox from that angle.
