SE MN grouse

I was out in my tree stand bow hunting the other evening and could hear the grouse drumming all over. I haven't really heard of anyone grouse hunting the Winona area before and am wondering if it is worth a try?

Thanks

Sam

I hunt turkeys down south of there and have always wanted to grouse hunt it..Always hear and see a bunch of birds..The only thing is you have to be half billy goat and have one leg longer than the other to hunt them effectively.. The terrain is rugged to say the least but I would love to give it a try..There is the chance for the mixed bag hunt with a rooster sprinkled in...I would give it a try for sure!!!! Tell us how it goes...uplander

Me and mydad hit that area a couple years ago. Only got one if i recall. But it is true, you need two sherpas and a mountain goat to cover that terrain.

Isn't all that area down there closed to grouse hunting? i could be wrong but i thought i saw a map that said you cant grouse hunt from an area around the metro south...I could be wrong

I heard a lot of grouse drumming and saw a few around the Wabasha area turkey hunting this spring...always wanted to try it...the hills would be tough and I guess I always end up heading north...

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
