At more than 560 pages, this new large-format book is not only the biggest book about hunting ruffed grouse ever published; it is also the most impressive in at least a generation. Award-winning Wild River Press has brought together renowned experts on grouse biology, dogs, guns, hunting strategies, and tactics. Extensive interviews with dedicated bird hunters throughout grouse country invite readers to sit in on a series of rich, highly personal conversations with many legends of the sport. A Passion for Grouse is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of spectacular color photographs that bring the reader right into the authors' favorite coverts, the smell of autumn in the crisp air, moving up behind a white dog frozen on point and shivering with excitement.
