grouse hunting allegheny national forest

guys,

I live in southeast PA and am having a hard time finding grouse for my young setter. I was thinking about driving out to the allegheny national forest on friday to try and get him on some birds. He needs to point some wild birds bad....these pen raised ones are getting old. I was wondering if somebody familiar with the area out there would be willing to come along or at least point me in the right direction of where i may find some birds to get him on. I would prefer not wasting the gas to drive 3+ hours out there and not see a bird or suitable habitat. any help you can give me would be great...you can PM me or even email me at [email protected] if youd rather not comment on here. Thank you!

Re: grouse hunting allegheny national forest

Your location listed(Schuykill county) has grouse. So does Bradford county to the North. A friend of mine who lives in Mansfield, Tioga county tells me their everywhere.

Who is John Galt?

Nothing like a good bird dog and a fine shotgun.

Any part of the ANF..that's kinda why I asked. I needed an idea of somewhere to start. And we do have some here but you might only find 1-3 a day. I wanted someplace to get this young dog alot of bird exposure

Re: grouse hunting allegheny national forest

I have heard that above Reading has been very good for grouse this year. As far as the ANF. I was there last friday. I hunted the Tidioute Area. Any SGL or huntable area in the forest will be good. You should not have a hard time finding suitable cover. Google earth and maps are a great resource.

Btw I am from the Pittsburgh area so I drove 2+ hours and it was my first time. We found great cover and have success in the morning with 6 flushes and 1 pheasant.

Good luck!
