Dang Ted, the photo of you and Louie now reminds me of an old Winslow Homer landscape (especially after it's been cloned & copied several times to lose a little focus). Have that one reproduced in oil and you'd have an interesting wall-hanger.

Upon further review, I'd say it looks more like something Russel Chatham might do or even Eldridge Hardie?

I has a nice, end of day quality about it, and the sky has a dramatic vibe, which, fortunately, was not the case.

Good work.

Best,
Ted

That looks like the Lancaster Kirby Hoyt had a while back. I held it in my hands. Nice gun!

The hammergun came from Kirby early last Spring (although he still has it on his webpage for sale?). It's a very early Lang.

As the natives say here...Ya der hey!

The last glorious days of Autumn (snow here Wednesday and for several days after). I depart Sunday.

Up early for my last cup of coffee here. Trying to be on the road no later than 9AM. The final gun scrub was last night after a dinner of leftovers. When I was out behind the house, looking at the LP gas bottle yesterday afternoon (for level information to judge the need for the next refill), one of this year's "pets" was watching over my shoulder...

[Linked Image from i.imgur.com] (OK, this was last year's bird. This year they weren't quite that bold).

I can finally say that I'm fully-sated this year, and now it's 1,150-miles back across the Great Plains to the concrete jungles of Denver (until the next adventure). If I've ever seen "cycle-highs" in grouse populations before, then this one was the highest of my lifetime. I do hope that it lasts for at least a little while.

Lloyd,
Looks like you had a great trip, safe trip home to you. A shame to leave such a good place, but next year! Nice picture of the resident pet!

For what it’s worth, the 4 of them that hung around the cabin this year, were the tamest grouse I’ve ever seen. They weren’t easily startled, and just flew far enough away to be out of reach. They strutted around like they paid the taxes on the place.

I’ve read about that phenomenon, but, first time I ever witnessed it was on this trip.

Safe travels, Lloyd.

Best,
Ted
