Not lately. It used to be a common everyday noise around here this time of year.
I've mostly stopped deer, turkey, rabbit, etc. hunting, but not grouse, they're easily my favorite. I have two English setters and still love pursuing them. We just bought a place in upstate SC and I've looked around the national forest a little bit. I've seen a few places where I wouldn't be surprised to flush one, but I won't hold my breath either. I sure hope they come back at some point in time.
