Grouse Hunting in Centre County

I'm new to grouse hunting and would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. I've been hunting Mt. Nittany but with no luck for grouse. Does anybody have good luck at Scotia?

Re: Grouse Hunting in Centre County

I grew up about 5 minutes away from Scotia and still hunt there on vacations with my dad as I just live down here near Hershey now. There are some decent areas in Scotia. Scout around and you should be able to turn up some grouse (Note to others I did not give away anyone's honey hole as a previous thread's discussion turned into! ) Just remember that cover is the key.

Re: Grouse Hunting in Centre County

I've been out in Scotia. There are a few grouse out there, but I've had better luck in other parts of Centre County.

Mt. Nittany is an interesting idea, there are some thick grousey stands towards the bottom of the mountain, and down near where the powerline cuts through it is super crazy thick (but I don't think you could even walk thru there). However, the handful of times I've been thru there, I've never seen a grouse.

Scotia is a good place to start, I used to hit some of the thickets out around the airport but not sure if its open to hunting anymore that was 15 yrs ago.
