    RUFFED GROUSE, far and away the most challenging IMHO. They have HUMBLED me on many occasions. Turkey's you don't hunt, you ambush(I'm not a sit and wait hunter) I perfer to "spot and stalk". While pheasants are "spot and stalk"birds, they are like shooting clay pigeons. That's not saying I hit every clay pigeon I shoot at, far from it. The ruffed grouse has that ability to put a tree between you and it at the instant you pull the trigger. Or flush the instant you crawl under or over that fallen tree. Or flush from next to your truck right as you unload the shotgun after you just spent the last four hours "beating the brush" search for them. The only time they flush and fly right down the logging road is when you've just taken both your shots at the "decoy" that flushed in the thickest spot possible and you missed, then the rest of them go! How the hell do they know to go after the TWO shots?
