    I have a great bird dog that I need to find a good home for. She is an 8 year old German short hair, fully trained. Good home is a must. Preferably an only dog.

  11. Rich

    what areas are huntable around grayson lake? Is there anyone to contact for information? Got a young dog would love to start hunting him on wild birds we’re both green at it but enjoying the ride so far! Thanks appreciate any tips I can gather

    • A lot of the members on here are consolidated around the far eastern part of the state, Paintsville and Pikeville and such. I live in Morehead and I’ve had “good” luck in the Daniel Boone, although they seem to be getting into more birds further down there.

  12. Allen Blankenship

    Recently sent email requesting how to get involved with your organization, haven’t heard anything so thought I may have put wrong email address. I have a life long love of grouse hunting, first hunting I did as a boy, and since I’m recently retired I would love to pursue your goals with you. Please let me know how I can get involved. Thank you, Allen

    Grew up hunting grouse in eastern Pike Co. Moved to Harrison Co 27 years ago and visited often to see family and hunt. Now that I am retired I would love to be involved in helping preserve grouse hunting for future generations as well as enjoy the experience I grew to love . Please let me know how I can get involved. Thank you.
