Full strut grouse!

4 posts in this topic

What an incredible sight, last night snooping around with the turkeys we came across a grouse in a little grassy clearing in full strut! Neck feathers were flared to the max and that old tail fan was spread wide open. Absolutely beautiful and the first time I've seen it. The funny thing was about 150 yards away 3 big toms were in full strut as well cool.gif

A very cool encounter indeed! I hope the little buggers made the winter alright with the early lack of snow... I've heard very little drumming in the Marcell area. Time will tell in the upcoming weeks...

I have heard more drumming and seen more this year than last. I have seen a grouse go into that display one year during the spring mating season as I drove my car close to it. It then hopped on my hood and attacked my window!! I sprayed some windshield washer fluid and turned on the wiper blades and then it flew off

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
