Family is up in Mercer for the week. Reporting zero grouse sighted based in their informal roadside surveys driving into and out of town.  Hope they see some.

What about Spruce Grouse, have any of you ever seen one in Wisconsin?  

I saw an article about them somewhere a few years ago.  I think the DNR said there are a few like 1000 or so estimated to be in Wisconsin.  I hunt grouse a lot but have never seen one.  I know that they cannot be shot but it would be neat to see one.

I was lucky enough to draw one of 25 available tags back in 2016 for a sharptail hunt in the northwestern part of the state and managed to bag my first and only Wisconsin sharptail grouse on Opening Day. It was a lot of fun and convinced me to head out west to try for a few more the next year. My brother and I have gone back out to Montana every year since. Unfortunately, that was the last year that a season has been held in Wisconsin and it's quite possible it might have been the last one ever, although I really hope not. I think that i remember reading that 7 grouse were harvested that year. Hope they won't be the last.

We used to deer hunt a little ways SW of Babcock/Sandhill. We’d see a few around, away from the timber out in the grassier areas.

I haven’t seen a single sharp tail in 15 plus years. I don’t know anyone who bagged one in at least that long.

Did anyone hunt for sharp-tails in this state? I don't know of anyone. I did see a fair amount of grouse this winter in spots I never see them so I am hopeful for this season

I thought I heard grouse season has been cancelled in Wisconsin.

Any word on how the broods look this season?  I think we had favorable weather so maybe that would offset the lower drumming counts.
