Indeed; A good choke and knowledge of you shotgun will result in less shot entering the body. My Dad taught me to shoot them in the head, while they were walking about picking gravel. You are also supposed to lead them when shooting them on the wing. However, since grouse tend to fly away from you, usually putting trees between them and you, this is difficult.
We used to walk the trails, and so found our grouse on the ground. That's when I used to get them.
I don't hunt much anymore. I haven't the time, and I'm not fond of killing things. But I do enjoy meat and so am not opposed to hunting or fishing. But I make sure to be thankful for the food given me, after the traditions of my Native heritage. Although, I did so even before I new much about my Native heritage. It's a spiritual thing I guess. And Spiritual things have been important to me since I was a young child.
