Recommended Posts

Headed to the inlaws this weekend and would like to do some grouse hunting. no way of getting out of going lol. So does anyone have some pointers for places to do some walking? I know there are a lot of four wheeler trails. does anyone know if these are open for public hunting?

There is a walking hunting trail up by Thunder Lake area, called Thunder Hollow.

As for the ATV trails, you'll have to check plat maps as the types of land they travel on vary (County tax forfeit, private, state, etc), plus the various town ordinances on shooting.

Haven't had great hunting up in that area for awhile now.

Hunted this area and areas within an hour for many years now without a lot of luck. They all seem to be hunted aggressively between archery and rifle for deer. Pair that with hunters walking like myself and the ATVers and we only average a few birds for our group a year there.

Plenty of great areas though, you just have to put in a lot of time walking off the trails and have a quick draw because the grouse tend to be pretty skiddish.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
