Default blue grouse....

went out today after some blues....found a few but all singles, most likely last years birds.....it seems that the late snow we had in the spring did a number on the chics....anybody else seeing more than just singles and pairs out there?

I don't know what to think. I found as many birds as I usually do (just one) but then again, I haven't been out much yet. A lot of guys are reporting low success, and others have said when they find them, they REALLY find them. Bax* and I are headed out on Saturday to see what we can find. I'll be able to give a better personal assessment then.

Just got back from a week of helping an elk hunter. I logged a lot of miles in some prime grouse habitat and only ran into about a dozen blues during that time. On a typical year, I would expect to see that many in a day! No question in my mind that blue grouse populations are down this year.

Geez and last year you guys were saying the numbers where up and I couldn't see a bird!! I guess I'm just upside down, I am from Louisiana so that makes sense!! So I need to get them when I can because if they move I guess I might not find anymore!!
