A good place for grouse?

I've got a 11 month GSP thats doing great on released birds. Not real steady on point yet but hey he's still a pup. I'm 42 yrs old and this is all new to me as well but our kids are coming of hunting age so its a great time for us all to learn together! I'm wondering if theres any good grouse area in the Indiana/Blairsville area? I dont mind driving within reason either.

Re: A good place for grouse?

No one is going to point you in on good grouse areas. Good grouse coverts are hard to find. You will have to do what everyone else does, start walking and look for them.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I rarely post anything but the last response inspired me. We like to go behing the Golden Pheasent off 286 between Saltsburg and Indiana. There is a bunch of woodland back there. Its been know to produce some fast moving grouse.

There is a lot of ground behind the golden pheasant to hunt, especially the right side of the road on your way in. There are some gas wells where you can park and hunt through the grapevines. There are some places behind the jacksonville medical center as well, which is only up the road another 1/2 mile headed towards saltsburg.

Re: A good place for grouse?

this would be a good time for the mods to delete specific locations! I don't even know the area at all but that might be somebodies honey hole that they scouted and found and now any body can go right to with out doing any of the work and shoot it out. Very unsportsman like. I am all for helping people and if you wanted to give a specific spot a pm and would have worked just fine.

Re: A good place for grouse?

First it's public land managed by the game commission so there is no such thing as somebodies honey hole. Second it's one of my best rabbit hunting spots, and I would gladly take anyone out there to hunt.

Too many people think they own the woods, and those "honey holes".

Re: A good place for grouse?

And I thought the title of this forum was pretty self explanatory . I was gonna just let it go but then again...Why should I when I posted a proper question in the proper forum!

Re: A good place for grouse?

A good way to find grouse is to study them and put the time in if you are really serious about. I am still always looking for good places to hunt them. Dont have nearly enough covers to hunt myself. I hunt all public land and dont want to over hunt any area. When you finally find an area it is so much more rewarding to just see one flush much less get a shot. I personally am always willing to help someone starting out but would never tell exactly where I hunt. It is what it is.
