had about a dozen notable spots along the Yukon where I heard non-stop drumming of wings during the spring. I'm not a big fan of killing spruce grouse because I don't like to eat them. BUT....if these were ruffed grouse, that's a delicacy as far as I'm concerned. Pushing moose meat takes a long time, it would be nice to stop along these places on the return and eat ruffed grouse everyday! I'm hoping they weren't just spruce grouse "fooling" me.
