Come fall, the opportunity to chase the 'king' and 'prince' of game birds becomes possible. Walking and exploring the woods in search of ruffed grouse and woodcock, with the help of a pointing dog, is one of the most fun hunting opportunities you can get in Michigan. Watching Redd, a German Shorthaired Pointer, lock up on scent of a ruffed grouse or woodcock is just as exhilarating as walking up to Redd and seeing the flush of a bird come right in front of you.
