Short hunts can be productive times afield

SOME SAY it’s against the rules, and even good judgment, to put in 40 minutes of round-trip driving just to get an hour in the grouse woods on an evening after a full workday.
The theory, according to one of my brothers-in-law, is that you have to hunt or fish for at least twice the driving time or it’s a bad idea. And that’s just the bare minimum, he claims, so more time in the great outdoors is obviously better.
But I broke the rule on an evening last week because that funny yellow thing in the sky was showing, something it hasn’t done for much of the ruffed grouse season that started in
