Latest Updates on Hunt The West
Colorado Bears and Grouse
June 4, 2008.
I had jury duty at 1pm on monday, so was able to get in a morning hike in the foothills above Denver.
I was attacked by my nemesis, a grouse that first came after me Memorial Day weekend. This time he actually waited in ambush behind a tree and attacked me from behind. He was more aggressive than before, hopping up and making me worry about my legs and face. Three solid kicks sent him away, but I did get one picture.
I warned a passing mountain biker to be on the lookout for him, and the biker told me that he had also been attacked by that same grouse earlier in the morning.
Two minutes later, I caught a small sow with two tiny cubs crossing the trail ahead of me.
Much more interesting morning than if I had been in the office.
