Grouse near Finland, MN

Recommended Posts

Captain B.R.K

It's going to be a homecoming of sorts for me this weekend! Finally coming up to the northshore to spend a weekend in the woods. My parents bought some land just south of Finland, off of HWY 1.

Are there many areas near there that would be good for grouse. I have never hunted the NE part of MN before for grouse. Any help would be appreciated guys....thanks!

Can't wait to get up there!

Brandon, thats a nice area up there. Lots of State land, Forest roads and trails to get you into grouse country. You'll have plenty of lakes to explore also. Yes your in a good are for Ruffed Grouse and even some Spruce Grouse mixed in.

Take a look at USGS maps all along Hwy 1 and around Isabella.

Sweet country! You should also pick up a Superior National Forest map from any forest service office. Less than $10 and all the forest roads and most of the trails are marked, as well as which land is private and which is public, which as a hunter you'd want to know.

Years ago, used to spend a lot of time walking logging roads between McDougal Lake and Isabella. Lots of stuff along the Stony River.

Thanks, Ken, that reminded me of the old railroad grades that have been turned into narrow gravel roads that crisscross Hwy. 1 between Isabella and Finland. I used to hike those a lot when I lived in Duluth, and some are pretty grousy.

Wow- Great news, I'm looking forward to getting up there!

Thanks Frank, Ken and Steve for the information. Since I won't be getting up that way until late Friday, how would I go about getting a USGS maps or the information Steve talked about.

This time of year the USFS offices should be open on Saturday morning, but I have been doing some research with maps online and found a site that gives a decent map, but because of the web address, the filter wont let me post it.

Shoot me an email at nateatgrandsuperiordotcom and I can forward it to you. It's not the greatest, but it does show some roads and the forest around Finland.

If you're hungry on the way up the shore stop in and see Cheffery, illtakewhaticanget, rodngun and myself at the lodge. Hope this helps a little.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
