"There are two kinds of hunting: ordinary hunting, and ruffed-grouse hunting."--Aldo Leopold, from A Sand County AlmanacLike that earlier grouse hunter Aldo Leopold, Mark Parman takes to the woods when the aspens are smoky gold. Here, in an evocative almanac that chronicles the early season of the grouse hunt through its end in the snows of January, Parman follows his dog through the changing trees and foliage, thrills to the sudden flush of beating wings, and holds a bird in hand, thankful for the meal it will provide. Distilling twenty seasons of grouse hunting into these essays, he writes of old dogs and gun lust, cover and clear cutting, climate change, companions male and female, wildlife art, and stumps. A Grouse Hunter's Almanac delves into the mind of a hunter, exploring the Northwoods with an eye for more than just game.Winner, Sports and Recreation, Midwest Book Awards Bronze Medalist, Sports, Foreword Magazine's Books of the Year
