Grouse Opener.... Wi
Opener for Grouse this week-end Sept 13th , anyone hunting their Grouse Opener ?

i'll be going up to the u.p. mich ,to bow hunt,warefowl,and grouse hunt but not until the first week in oct. from what i'd seen and heard there should be alot of grouse up there this year.pobably have to shoot a doe with the bow though, i already bought my licenses on line, should have read the rules first,because this year if you buy separate lic. you can only shoot one buck,so if i shoot one with the bow the gun lic. won't be any good!if you buy the combination lic. you can either shoot a doe or a buck with the bow,BUT the buck has to have 3 pts on one side,thats with the regular half of the lic. the other half is a restricted lic. which you can use bow hunting also,i forget but i think you can shoot a doe with that but the buck has to have 4 pts. on one side.if you use the combination lics. gun season you can shoot two bucks BUTone has to have 3pts. on one side the other buck has to have 4pts. on one side.if you buy a gun lic. you can shoot any buck with at least one antler 3'' in length.kinda confusing hey! encore

encore... I heard the grouse is better than last year , good chance of getting the bag limit ,
I've been out grouse scouting and have had some great flushes ,
Deer Lic in Michigan sure is a bit confusing , wow not very good reasoning for buying a separate lic ,

good luck hunting

i was up there last week and in a two mile section drive around i counted twelve bucks,all spikes and forks but one .the other one was an eight point maybe a fourteen inch spread.pobably their way of letting the smaller ones grow up.just my thought---encore

Saw 3 nice bucks this afternoon , not one grouse flush ,
just hope the opener is COLD !

boy that 8 pointer would make a nice rack on the wall !

opener brought 10 grouse flushes , had one good free shot but not a safe one so keep the gun down ,
just way to thick in the woods , dogs did great , weather was rain and cool.

woodcock were scattered all around , no chance of shooting those not open season for them ,

sure hope you all had a great opener !

Would love to get to hunt early but being a taxidermist ( we take in nearly 100 bears a year) someone has to man to shop & phone 24 hours a day till bear season is over . But come late Oct. I'll be sitting in a tree !!!
