You New England guys are killing me!!
I was introduced to Grouse hunting almost 10 years ago by an old girlfriend' s father and have become addicted. Unfortunately, I an in the wrong state and have been hankering to move the family up to Maine. Better quality of life, better birds. The two seem to make sense as prime reasons to me - trouble is to convince the wife.
I even have a DeLorne atlas of Maine and love just looking through the maps. . . .man, am I a glutton for punishment or what?
The MD population is very low I think. I used to be able to flush several birds in a morning in the Western part of the state, but for the past two years I have not flushe ONE bird
! I am pretty worried about the population here.
Best of luck up there in NH, NY, PA, and yes, Maine.
