They are posted, I believe I saw them for WI and MN in a recent magazine - sorry, can't remember which one. Anyway, the info. is out there, counts are down in most of WI, can't remember MN counts.

The Sept issue of Minnesota Sportsman has a big article on grouse this year and the word down is not in the article. Just the contrary. From what I saw last year the article is correct. We'll all know in another month. Personally I know where some great numbers are but maybe it's just localized.

Ya there always seem to be a couple of aera I go to that can produce birds no matter what they say. But the best time i have ever had grouse hunting is when I took the wife, who had never hunted but loved to shoot clays,on a trip up to Grand Marias. We stand in a little log cabin behind a hotel. It was fantastic up there and all the people we meet were great especially the guys on the trail.(ate at the same place twice and the waitress remeber our names) We were up for four days and on the first day out I get a real close shot at a grouse and it falls into the middle of the trail and you know how the keep beating their wings, well that was it for her, she did not want to shoot one after that but the great part is that she keep going out to the woods with me walking all the trails and she enjoyed it even more than i did. Plus she said she wants to go back. Said she will even take a crack at shooting one this time.

My wife likes to walk with me too as long as I go on a trail. Wierd thing is I have had great luck when she has been with me.
On a side note I was in Ifalls for 5 days and did not see any grouse. I was always looking down trails and walked a mile down a beautiful trail but nothing. Maybe just bad luck but the locals didn't seem all that excited about them either.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
