Frost, birds make for memorable opener

By Kurt Krueger

THE?GRACE of God was shining on grouse hunters last Saturday morning as the first frost of the season blanketed the uplands, a perfect opening morning to be walking in the woods.

There’s just something about frost-covered ferns and grass in the clearings that sends a message about the changing seasons even before the calendar shows fall has arrived.

The winds were still and you could hear certain sounds from miles away — what sounded like bear hounds on the chase, a lone rifle shot, coyotes yipping and, from time to time, a shotgun blast or two.
