Cool crisp mountain air. The smell of autumn and the distant sound of a bugling bull elk. And then an answer from challenger. The fire is going now with the smell of coffee brewing. You can hear the wife moving around in her down filled sleeping bag. With the other mountain sounds there is a sudden dull thumping from the trees behind the camp. It begins to pickup speed and ends in a louder crescendo of wings beating on a strong breast. The male ruffed grouse has also issued out a challenge to all males in the vicinity that he's up for a fight. #1611723
