@Rick you are correct but ducks vs grouse. I love grouse but it’s a drive to get to good grouse grounds. Maybe later this month.

took the kids out last weekend. weather was beautiful saturday, iffy sunday. ended up with 7 birds. basically shot 100% i should stop for the year.  did end up with one nice male spruce grouse.

i've always found birds in pockets regardless of counts. as a matter of fact some of my best years have been the lowest count years. i've learned you can't shoot one from the couch! and a lot of peopl

Spent 9 days at camp with a buddy. Filled out in 4 1/2 days. Saw close to 90. They are pretty wild. Chased one for a quarter mile through swamps and islands before I got him. Spent the rest of the wee

i've always found birds in pockets regardless of counts. as a matter of fact some of my best years have been the lowest count years. i've learned you can't shoot one from the couch! and a lot of people don't go when the numbers are supposedly low. that was near Orr. yup, kind of a haul. but i stayed in the hotel in orr with a pool so the kids could swim, then took them to the bear sanctuary in the evening. a pretty darn good weekend. gotta make it fun for the little ones!

We had a bit of snow up north again. Grouse hunting not too bad.

There are plenty of birds out there we got 25 for the 4 of us last week in 4 days. Cover isn't an issue if you are far enough north.

Quite the haul! How far north are we talking? I'm debating between Nemadji and Mille Lacs WMA. No dogs, solo at first light.

Tentative plan to get out Friday morning early. I’ll be North of Duluth. Hoping to chase some birds (grouse)!

First time in Canosia Wildlife area...flushed 2 birds but no shot. Fun to be in the woods. Long season to keep trying this sport!

Good to hear other's are having success out there. I went out on Monday morning, just after we got all the rain. Perfect time of year I think, the aspen leaves are mostly down now, and I saw lots of promising grouse habitat. Spent the day bush whacking, but only managed to flush one bird (no shot) and it got into some thick cover that I couldn't pursue through. Still great to be outdoors, but I was bummed to not get to heat up the cast iron. Next time!

      I just tore down a CS2250s chainsaw and when I was putting it back together I found a part on my bench that I don't know if it belongs to the saw or not. Does anyone know if this is a part that belongs on the saw? I looked over a parts diagram and didn't see it, but I don't want to try running it if it's an important part. It's a little bigger in diameter and thickness than a quarter. Thanks

      Never fished it myself but have always heard the best laker water is on the BW side of the lake.

    • Fishing DA Range and nort
      Anyone know where to catch pout.   We have been staying nights and keep lines down 24-7 on the lake while we are there, caught several on LOW but cant seem to find them here.   Maybes its to early yet.    Any location to anyone suggest searching for burbs.
    • Fishing DA Range and nort
      Yep, think it was his 2nd biggest, he was pumped.  With COVID shutdowns we have been LOW twice and vermillion 3 times, headed back on weekend.      He's diehard, wants to camp in a portable out there this weekend.

      Have been fishing LOTW for many years now, but often wonder about fishing rainy lake. But there never seems to be any info on winter fishing. Is it because no one does it? Would be interested in knowing if there are plow roads out onto the lake, places to stay or any often info. Thanks.
