    I was at the arena on saturday watching my youngest daughter practice, shooting the sheet with some other Dads. Talk got around to grouse and they all got excited talking about how march break is the best time from hunting Roughies, started telling stories. I laughed and asked them if they knew grouse closed in Jan..... Man did they get quiet...

    Saw tons while hiking up in French River on the weekend, including one being eaten by a fox.

    LMAO! I thought you mistyped something while I was reading that. How can you hunt roughies in March. LOL I guess they don't read the regs to much up there.

    No they don't..... It's pretty common for guys to cruise the back roads here in March and snipe of the Grouse as they roost in the road side trees after picking grit on the roads.

    That just makes me mad... VERY MAD

    You're not even too far north HB, no CO's cruising those roads?! Should be easy to catch these idiots.

    I still have not seen or heard any yet this spring and I check 2600 acres daily. I do have a nice Tom turkey that comes every single morning at 8 to my hen pheasant pen. He hangs out and listens to grateful dead radio with me til about 10 every day.

    A big one? I have to admit that all the grouse I have ever come across were more or less the same size!

    Me too until the one in Bailey's mouth in my Avatar... I poked it in some Cedars on the edge of a snowmobile trail a few yrs ago and when she gave it to me i was shocked by the size and weight, definately half again the size of a "normal" one.
