Have. Question. About a sound that is foreign to me. It starts out as a dull thud followed by thud thud followed by thud thud thud followed by thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud. I no that sounds weird. The other way I can describe it is similar to when you spin a quarter on a table and how it eventually wobbles and falls down. Imagine doing that with a circular disk of wood. I have heard this sound each time I have been out and each time on multiple occasions.

Probably a ruffed grouse drumming. Google it, you can probably find a video on youtube or somewhere.

Not much to report today. Active logging in one area. Some gates open some gates closed. I just drove around scoping out the different areas. Lots of private property private road no trespassing signs along roads that lead to gates???  Can I drive up to the gate?

:yeah:

The top one looks like claw marks above the peel/rub. The small tree in the second picture maybe a deer rub. I actual got a sense that a cub did the smaller one. I think these two were next to each other. I hunted huge whitetails all my life in Kansas. NEVER saw a rub on a tree as big as in a couple of the pics I posted. I should say RARELY. but still I do not know anything about blacktails. Other than that there racks are smaller.  tup

Pretty damn good description of the grouse drumming sound though.

Neither one of those trees were damaged by a bear.

Walked about 12 miles today. Found a shortcut on a trail that was forgotten on Wyco map and not on the Garmin either. Highlight of the day was four mole rats or shrews. Found one. Then another half eaten a quarter mile away. Then two side by side a half mile down.

Anybody know where I can find some bear sign?

We went to Dryad and then up Kobe Road and tried to access 550 today and the gate had a couple locks but the permit lock was not there.  I couldn't figure out how to get the gate open.  Am I doing something wrong?  Thanks

Thanks for gate information.  I thought they were opening them a week early.
