Field Dressing Tip:
Dress grouse when first shot by stepping on wings, breast up, wings out, head at the top, take hold of the feet and steadily pull towards you. The grouse will separate, leaving you holding the feet, legs and entrails. On the ground remain the exposed breast, heart and liver attached to the wings. Remove the legs if it's a fair size grouse, you may get a few finger strips after you remove all the sinew. At least one wing must be left on for identification until you reach home.
