Re: sw PA grouse

I can remember 20 + flushes for a half day hunt in Washington county. Thoses days are gone. In th early 80's I had two brits and we did excellent on stocked phesants, woodcock and some grouse. I wish the younger guys could experiance those hunts.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: sw PA grouse

When to SGL 11 today. Had 2 flushes and my Britt pointed 5 woodcock.

If it weren't for Bird Dogs and Upland Game Birds I would be just another Bored Old Man!

Re: sw PA grouse

I have wondered myself why the grouse are so down in SW PA recently. I use to flush alot of them in Washington Co. but haven`t seen one on many years. What do you guys think?

Re: sw PA grouse

20 years ago, I could spend 1/2 a day in dogwoods and grape tangles and have 5-8 flushes/hr. easy.

I know my property inside and out and I'm not sure I could take you to a grouse anymore. There are a few there........very few. I see them occasionally. But to go out and actually find one on purpose......... good luck.

Re: sw PA grouse

If you want to find good grouse hunting in SW PA you need to head to Somerset Co., lots up there.
