Who would you take to your favorite grouse coverts
Just wondering, how many of you share coverts with others. I enjoy hunting by myself and with others. I am learning that good grouse coverts are something that can be considered a prized possession. Also I would imagine that if I were to invite someone to hunt with me in my located coverts, I would expect them to invite me to hunt theirs as well.
Is it wrong to ask them not to hunt these areas, if not accompanied by you, even if it is on public land? I want to hunt with others, but am very afraid of revealing this areas I worked hard to find. I have gotten burned in the past with deer hunting, and taking people to hunt with me, or explaining to them where I hunt.
I have a great friend, who I trust very deeply and am not afraid to share coverts with him, as he will share his with me. Other than that, I am hesitant to share my spots with other people. Who do you trust, and do you ever share/swap hunts with others? Is it understood, that in grouse hunting if you bring someone to one of your scouted coverts, that they do not return without your presence? I am beginning to believe that a great grouse spot is something that should be more protected than a great whitetails spot, With how habitat picky grouse are, it is even more important to keep it under the radar. Have you ever/ would you ever, take any strangers (members of a forum, that you do not know personally) to any of your grouse spots?
it seems that one might be better off being a loner in the grouse woods...
