Scouting for Grouse
« on: September 14, 2016, 04:04:08 PM »
I'm looking at a new area of forest roads. Boots on the ground.

Does it make sense to scout a new area in the afternoon?

Are the grouse active all day or only at mornings and nights?

If things are moist from dew, they seem to come out later when things dry out.
