I was driving deer this past week with some friends in northern PA. We flushed a few grouse on every drive on the big mountains in the laurels, however, in one stretch between 2 of us we had over 12 flushes. It was an area that had been slash cut probably within the last 10 years and had a deer fence around it. The fence was taken down at some point and all of the trees were probably around an inch thick. Hopefully the virus or whatever that has impacted the population in the state doesn't hit there, or maybe this population of birds have developed an immunity to it. What a pleasant surprise, lit a fire in my belly to start grouse hunting again. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait till next year to get out, but I marked those places on my GPS!
Take an older friend hunting or fishing - they're the reason we do what we do!
