Blue grouse are going to be up high, since they move up for the winter. They'll be pretty tough to hunt right now. Just getting to them might be nearly impossible unless you use snow shels. Ruffed grouse you could find down low along streams.

You don't need a dog. Most grouse hunting in this state is done without a dog. Go find some closed roads and start walking.
