Pay no mind. Once, a few years back, when Denny made a comment about no Canucks coming here to hunt anymore, I had to remind him that there was two hunter Canucks setting at the very dinner table as him and I just 8 months prior.

I think he's been snorting to much sawdust and it clogged something up.

I was over Marienville way last week, there were a couple cars at Cougar Bobs but not a sole at the Blue Jay.
Most every camp was empty and I only saw one bunch of guys muzzle loader hunting.

Now near Tidioute there were plenty of guys hunting, locals I imagine.

We had a nice tracking snow here in 5C but no one was hunting in my area and that was good news.

I went out with the flinter today, got to my stand about 2pm. By 2:20pm I had a doe and fawn feeding across the hill at about 30 paces. I watched them for an hour and then sat quiet until about 4pm, when a button buck came running in and stood at 4 yards from me bobbing his head at me. Then he went about to browsing away and then came back and stood in his same tracks and looked at me again. Then he slowly browsed away in the opposite direction and I sat tight until he was on the top of the hill. By then it was getting pretty dark so I got to packing up and heading for the truck. I kicked up a lone deer over the hill near my truck but couldn't see what it was. I made it to the truck, fired it up and sat in it for awhile with the heat blasting. I was pretty cold from sitting still all that time with the deer around me. It is gonna be brutal tomorrow though, with highs in the mid teens. Tomorrow will be a tracking and stalking day for sure. Not much standing in one spot for any length of time.

I saw a bunch of grouse in 2f for rifle season. I had about 12 heart attacks on that trip. I don't see any around home where I hunted today. They have been absent the last couple of years here. Either that or they just sit tight more than other areas, and we walk on by. We do still hear drumming though in the spring and summer, so there must be some.

If your buck hunting I'll put you in a stand and push a buck past you, he might not be legal but it will be a buck, then again it could be a slammer that I have not seen. But I'll trade deer for grouse any time.

Jim, I could pm you and tell you where to go in 2f. I'm not gonna guide you though. I have never been a good grouse hunter. I'm simply too slow of a shot. Them things startle me when they explode outta cover, and I forget what to do.
I guess a good dog helps? I was never good at picking out dogs either.
I don't know where you live, but I live 2.5 hours from that spot in 2f.
I was hunting in 2b today.

I'd love any tips on areas that hold grouse, I'm in 1 B 30 miles south of Erie, 2 F is close enough to consider. I spent last Saturday over that way, and was heading back today but this snow and cold put that on the back burner for another week or so.
