I shot my first bird today with my new 870 super mag I bought last Sunday. It was a Ruffed Grouse from the Mt. Hood Natl Forest.
What a great day to be in the woods! It was so nice out...cool at elavation but a warm day, sunny, and I took a beating humping the hills.
Hiked to Middle Rock Lake, Upper Rock Lake, and 1/2 way to Serene Lake before light started to fade.
I saw my first cougar in the wild. I came around a bend in the road near High Rocks campground on my way to Fraizer Turnaround. It was about 40 yeards ahead if me on the down hill side of the road, crossed the road and bolted up hill...What a treat!
