I was on a canoe trip recently outside Ely MN with the family and some friends last week. 21 years ago I had picked up a contender with the 45/410 barrel for grouse during late season canoe trips and woods walks (my gateway into handgun hunting). It's been many years since I connected with one on such a trip, but I got extremely lucky as we stumbled across 3 young ones on a long portage. They were tasty in the campfire jambalaya that evening. My son was also quite excited about the whole deal.



The 45/410 barrel with Winchester 3" #6 steel shot worked well. Much better then the Federal loads I had been using.

Fantastic! What a great day with your son.

I have a similar set up that I'm looking to try this year for small game. Unfortunately, it probably won't be for grouse in this state. They're almost nonexistent anymore.
