Final retrieve, in snow, closes another chapter
By Kurt Krueger

IT WAS on one of those warm, calm afternoons just before Christmas when the urge hit to leave work while there was still some daylight left, a rare two-hour window of opportunity to get outdoors.
Ice fishing would normally be the choice, but the equipment wasn’t in the grab-and-go condition it should have been. So I opted for a walk in the grouse woods with Gracie, our youngest black Lab.
It’s seldom that the scribbler hunts ruffed grouse after winter arrives for good, but snow levels were poor and most balsam trees still protected bare ground — a great hiding spot for grouse.
