grouse plot

3 posts in this topic

was thinking of making the edges of the fourwheeler trail that runs through my land into a "miniplot". was thinking of planting clover, but was wondering if anyone has had luck with anything else for attracting grouse. thanks

I suppose it depends on what time of year you are trying to attract them. In my neck of the woods if I want to find grouse in the early season I start looking for gray dogwood or highbush cranberrys. Grouse also love just about any fruit bearing tree you can think of. Right before the snow comes wild strawberry leaves are also a delicacy for grouse. They are one of the last green things in the woods. In winters without much snow cover nice thick pines that offer shelter from the wind and cold can't be beat.

All 'grouse treat's aside, if you really want to draw gouse to your property, clear cut sections of it and plant aspens. Shooting or trapping every predator on the place wouldn't hurt either.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
