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...

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .

    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
