I agree. I find that where there are turkeys, there are few grouse.

In my experience of hunting ole ruff in ky over the last 35 years the great lakes states better not let the Turkey population get out of hand or they'll never have the grouse numbers they have had in the past. West Nile or not.

There aren't any where we Grouse hunt, at least I've never seen one. Too bad, I'm always looking for an edge.

Yes it does have scaly bark. After your response I looked it up. That is the tree for sure. If anyone wants to attract grouse plant these tree's! Thanks JKling!

If the bark is scaly it's a Hop Hornbeam. Member of the Birch family.

It is not a nut tree. It forms catkins later in the year with long buds about 1-2" that are held all through the winter. I have 2 of these tree's in my yard which is in a heavily wooded area. There were grouse feeding on them in the morning at first light all through the winter nearly every morning.

Could it be hazelnut or beech tree?  Not sure.

Can anyone tell me what kind of tree this is. It's a grouse magnet that's for sure.

On my walk today , jumped a hen with chicks in a two year old cut near a spruce swamp . Only saw 4 chicks but they flew well . Actually heard the hen clucking before the flush . Douglas county .

My dog and I went for our daily walk in the Chequamegon today. In a unexpected spot small grouse started flushing. I wondered why he went on point? Duh??? About 5-7 chicks I think. Pretty hard to tell.  Mom was chirping like crazy. Really a pretty swampy area actually and I did not think they would be in that kind of cover. Very wet? Good sign though.
