Grouse in Franklin oil city area

Any one hunt the game lands around Franklin oil city area. I was thinking about taking my lab up there after grouse. When I was in my teens about 7 years ago, we used to deer hunt from my best friends cabin up on sandy creek. We put grouse up from incidental contact. I haven't walked those woods in at least 8 years. Are there birds or am I waiting my time

There are still birds there. Nothing like it used to be. Problem with much of the area (sg lands-39) is the cuts are 10+ years past their prime. Find areas with good cover and you will find birds. You will find better numbers futher north of Franklin. Only drawback is those areas open to the public are hunted hard thoughout the season and those birds most days are as hard of a Ruff to kill as you will find.

Where there is cover, there are birds. Like Penn stated you should be able to find some if you find the habitat. If you are willing to go a little further, Tionesta and above are great places to tramp around. Be prepared to walk and search. Put in the time and you will be rewarded.

Good luck!
