Potter County Grouse Forecast

I was up in Potter Co. the last few days and was excited with the amount of grouse chicks that were seen. Had 3 different groups of grouse, 1 had about 5-7 chicks, 2nd had about 6-8 chicks and the 3rd had at least 10 and maybe a few more. I looked for a second female in the last group but didnt see any as they were all out on an ATV trail dusting themselves. All of the birds flew very well and were of good size so it seems the hatch was good on my land. Plenty of apples on the apple and thornapple trees and the Beech Trees seem to be loaded up also compared to the last 4-5 years. Wild Blueberrys looked good and ripe so the little brown flying rockets should have a good summer. All of my habitat work is really paying off. I wont even mention the 3 bucks I saw. All I can say is O.M.G

Re: Potter County Grouse Forecast

Rick,
How big were the young grouse? The siz of quail, pigeons, or were they still tiny? Could they fly into trees?

Tom, they were between the size of a dove and pigeon and all flew very well and fast. They flew in trees and out of trees and some just sat there as you walked past! they all looked real good!!

Re: Potter County Grouse Forecast

I hunt potter for bear near conrad and kicked out 10 different grouse on one drive on the top of the mountain. Made me think to try some grouse hunting on the friday before bear. But I dont think taking my "Black Lab" out up there that close to the season is a great idea.

That's exactly why I'd never consider a Gordon, bell or not.

If guns cause crime, mine must be broken.

Re: Potter County Grouse Forecast

There are far more grouse up there, it seems, than 30 years ago.

Anyone agree with that?

Now wait, I'm sorry, did I say that?

THERE ARE NO GROUSE IN POTTER COUNTY.

Re: Potter County Grouse Forecast

Let's not spread these flase rumors about grouse. My camp mates run up and down the hills up in Potter for grouse although I say there are no grouse there. Just look at Lugnut's photos every year!!!
