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!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
