2021 Grouse Harvest
« on: September 15, 2021, 12:21:20 PM »
Here is a spot to post all your 2021 Grouse harvests.
I'll get us started with an opening day ruffy I shot this morning. Saw three total while I was out.

Just got back from my go-to spot of the last 3 years.  Owner applied herbicide to the shoulders of the road and all the little yellow flowers the grouse like were gone, along with the grouse.

I went out this afternoon on a exploratory mission to a spot I've never been here in Spokane county. My Golden flushed 3 ruffs but I didn't even get off a shot it was so damn thick. Heading out again tomorrow around Pend Orielle County. I've got an invite to hunt some private land that borders a large chunk of timber company property around Little Blue Grouse Mountain. I'll post the results tonight hopefully. Grouse numbers were way down everywhere I hunted last year, and I covered a lot of good ground too. Even spots that have produced for me for 20 years were a bust, which was concerning seeing as my ace in the hole spot that's been dubbed "The money draw" by a friend failed to produce a single bird. This is the same draw that on opening day of 2019 had produced 19 flushes and 3 bird limit.  And I could have shot a fourth too but I'm sticking to a self imposed 3 bird limit, as I'm not a fan of the 4 bird limit. This is my first post BTW- Excited to be here.

I saw way less grouse this season so far where I like to bear hunt. Usually count on seeing a lot

Went out for a half day today. Only 1 flush and no shot. Not many birds in usual hangouts. Maybe the coming rain will get them dispersed a bit.

Saw plenty on Labor day weekend, you know, opening weekend? Must have all been brood hens.
