Hi All,

I am currently on the homeward leg of an Alaskan bird watching trip. During my 
travels I was speaking to some hunters in Barrow who were gloating about a 
recent Grouse Grand Slam where they had shot three grouse species in a day in 

This got me thinking, would it be possible to complete a non-lethal Grouse 
Grand Slam with all 7 North American grouse species (12 species if you include 
ptarmigan and prairie-chicken) being observed during the breeding season in one 
short, say 2week trip?
>From what I can gather this would involve crossing through at least 4 states 
>(Washington, Idaho, Colorado, Kansas and maybe even venturing across the 
>boarder into British Columbia)
Does anyone know if this is possible? Has it been done? There are probably tour 
guides out there offering this service but I couldn't locate any during a quick 
internet search!
It would be quite an adventure!!!
