Dang! If I ever got more than 5 in one day, I'd say that the Grouse theory is right!

Please tell me you were on public land. I put on quite a few miles and only saw 3.

Yeah, we only hunt public land where we are at. I am guessing all-in-all we saw 30+ birds over 2 full days of hunting.

Good job MNDeerhunter,

I'm heading up this weekend to give it a try. Looks like the birds are up this year so hopefully we can get to some like you did.

Yes the grouse seem to be plentiful this year. My cousin has been shooting many. Grouse are in pockets somedays you can walk all day and see a couple. Other days after about half hour can have your limit. All I know is I am very eager to get out. I personally think grouse are the most tasty of game!

Your absolutely right!

Grouse are up in certain pockets. I shot my limit the otherday in about 3 hours flushing close to 15 birds. Earlier in the season I walked all day with my two dogs and saw 1. Beautiful time to be working the dogs in the northwoods, and a tasty grouse dinner is a nice bonus. As a sidenote my first grouse in the bag was caught by my chocolate lab. Good way to start the day!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
