Whether glassing for Montana Mule deer, or rooting out Javelina in Texas, Rinella defers to his backcountry roots, challenging himself at every corner while providing a memorable adventure along the way.
In the first part of this series, Steve attempts a unique spring hunt for sooty grouse in the coastal rainforests of southeast Alaska. These mysterious hooters make for a hunt that is markedly different from any other and success doesn't come easily.
