I was grouse hunting near Duluth yesterday with Hansi Johnson of Thomson. He was riding his new Cogburn CB4 fat bike, a mountain bike with extra-wide tires and a rack to carry his shotgun. Johnson has used the bicycle several times this fall for his hunts. He says it allows him to probe farther into the woods and reach pockets of good cover.
Check Sunday’s News Tribune Outdoors pages for my complete story on Johnson and his bicycle hunting. I’ll include a couple more photos here.
