It looks like a Hungarian partridge to me. We had them where I used to live. Was it in a big flock in open brush? Ruffed grouse would be a woodland bird in small flocks or single.

I would highly recommend a closed cell foam pad or equivalent to sit on. A towel won't provide adequate insulation and sitting on something cold will chill you quickly.

If you want to really learn how to hunt deer, hunt with a bow. Bow hunting will make you a better rifle hunter. Rifle hunting, comparatively, is more or less just getting groceries.
