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!

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      54 degrees saturday in lakes NE of metro.

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
