Dennis Walrod takes beginning and experienced grouse hunters alike through an examination of key aspects of the hunt: how to get the most out of a covert, choosing guns and dogs, as well as concerns particular to autumn stalking or winter hunting. The emphasis falls on grouse hunting as a sport pursued for the thrill of the hunt, the adrenaline shot brought by the force of a flush, rather than the quest for impressive numbers.
