Ruffed Grouse

For ruffed grouse hunters, the next few weeks will be prime hunting time.  The broods are dispersing, and adult males can be heard drumming in defense of their home ranges.  Recent cool and windy weather will hasten leaf fall allowing hunters a more open understory.  Concentrate your hunting efforts near aspen forests that have been clear-cut during the past decade.  Grouse will concentrate around favorite food sources such as grey dogwood.
