Blue grouse that is!
I may have an oppurtunity to go to the SE this spring and would like to go after a few. I was wondering a few things though.
Roughly what is the timeframe of the "hooting"?
Is it dependant on a late/early spring or is their mating season basically the same time every year?
Is it even worth bringing a shotgun for spring birds, or are they really almost exclusively ontop of the tall trees?
Also, how about black bears during this timeframe? Are they out? Typically, when do you start hunting black bears in let's say, around Juneau?
And of course, any information is greatly appreciated!!!
