Hi every one, Happy New Year to you all.

I had planned to to the Cleveland Way at the start of September but then I go to thinking that this is grouse shooting season. Has any one who has walked this in September experienced shooters in the areas I would walk through to an extent I would feel uncomfortable? I'm not worried about my safety, more the stress at what was happening to the birds and the verbals I would give the shooters !

Thank you.

Sorry I can't advise, but I wholeheartedly agree with your viewpoint... not much of a 'sport' in my book. I think the 'grouse season' ends Jan 31st, but I heard them out today near where I live so not sure,
