Lots of guys are coming up on the weekends to hunt.  Common areas are getting pounded.  Seeing groups of 4+ guys...more than normal.


This weekend we get the pleasure of having the Youth Deer Hunt.    Don't forget your orange.

We ran into a few people while hunting last weekend but it definitely wasn’t crowded.

This is my first year really targeting grouse and woodcock. When do the woodcock usually move south? I know there can always be some resident birds around but do the migratory birds usually stay through October or so?

We’re heading up this weekend!   What has the hunting pressure been like for those of you that have been in the field?

Was bouncing around iron county mi., and Florence wi for a week. Flushed a good amount of grouse got only a couple,  lots of leaves on the trees still. Flushed a lot of woodcock also, don't care for their flavor so I don't shoot them but it's fun to watch the dogs flush anything. I'd say with the warm weather they'll still hang around for another week.  Will be heading back up next weekend for 3 or 4 days.

Hunted Price County over the weekend for grouse and woodcock.  Decent amount of birds around.  Still a lot of leaves and thick cover.  Managed to get three grouse and two woodcock.  Had a lot of fun.

River_chaser I feel your pain. Last season, my old Weimaraner locked up hard under a stand of pine. I searched all around me kicking around with no movement. She stayed locked up. I walked around the stand. Nothing. I stood still for a minute and a grouse flushed off a branch at eye level about 6 feet out in front of me. Flew right past my face. I spun around fired twice and missed horribly. The dog walked away from me looking over her shoulder in disgust.

Feelin bad for my dog today.  She did so well had several hard points.  I missed a few birds but most of the time the setups werent good for a shot.  I did manage one woodcock for her. 

At one place I had crossed swamp and went into a black spruce thicket.  Real tight stuff.  She locked up so hard she was staring 3 feet in front of me.  I looked hard and theres nothing there. I walked up to the exact place she was lookin at. There is nothing there. She is looking an inch in front of my boot and she is locked tight.  There is nothing there. I stood still for about 20 seconds. Nothing. I moved my foot one inch and a woodie exploded from between my legs. Woodie shot straight up right in front of my face I could feel the wind from the wings.  Spruce was so tight I couldnt move the gun for a shot.
