I've seen more hunters than grouse this week in Price Cty.  It is also very wet- bring your rubber knee boots!

Buddy of mine has hunted past couple of days. Has seen a decent amount of birds around Phillips. Went to Iron County today and struggled. He went up there just to try new land. Very slow around Park Falls. We’ll be joining him this weekend. Weather doesn’t sound great however. Certainly more leaves on the trees in Phillips compared to Iron County according to him.

I was up to the Chequamegon (Price County) late last week. 3 out of 4 days were very wet.  Did not hunt on Saturday because of rain. Still a lot of leaves, but more were falling. Friday the nice day, we got off the trails and back in about a mile. We flushed a lot of birds but not many good shot opportunities. I ended up with a handful of empties and no birds in the bag.  I'm blaming the leaves. :)

Never saw a woodcock.  Usually do see some in the low areas.

Going back north later this week.

Still many leaves on trees.  I am heartened by all the birds we are moving.  Though they are flushing about 50 yards out and I cant even see 90% of them even when dog has a solid point they wing up before I get there.  My legs are keeping up with the dog but my eyes are aging faster. 

Colors should be peaking on weekend of October 5

Am surprised  no one here has mentioned it.  Ive gotten it through hearsay that the rule was finalized on sept 25 that season close will be on Jan. 5 2020.  Not sure if the decision is based on sound science but I will say (from research Ive read) that birds in winter are more stressed without several inches of fluffy snow to shelter in. And hunting them in low-snow conditions will increase their stress levels and decrease ability to survive other mortality factors.

We're heading north next weekend!  Has the rain and wind brought down any leaves?

Sad to hear about Douglas County, heading up there soon. We hunting a few spots in Clark County for the first time this past weekend and only saw one grouse and one woodcock. Are there any birds to be found around Clark and Jackson or do I need to go further North?
