Grouse???

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone hunts grouse down here? I am from northern minnesota and pretty new to the area. Moved here last summer and didn't do any grouse hunting down here. I know they're around the whitewater area as I have heard them drumming while fishing. Just haven't really heard of anyone hunting them. I am planning on doing some exploring and trying to flush a few up...

Let us know how you do. Last year I kicked up a few cubbies of partridge while dove hunting near Hayfield, but never saw them once season opened.

My brother bird hunts and I can tell you this much.Go to the area your allowed to hunt and go into the area of pine trees on top of hills or ridges.

I have seen a few in the river bottoms, nothing like home up north although. I think they see as many grouse down here as we would see Pheasants back home.

Thanks for the info guys. Went up north for a few days up around Orr for some grouse hunting and it was great. More flushes then ever and lots of shooting. Had a 40+ flush day, ran into a group of 8 birds, pretty fun. So doing that probably won't spend too much time down here, just have to spend some time driving to get the bird(grouse) itch scratched.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
