Okay, 3 strikes and i am convinced I suck at grouse hunting. Been out 3 times in a week for about 2 hours each time and haven't heard or seen a grouse. Couple squirrels, couple moose, but no grouse.
I was told on to look for areas where there is grit for them, but everything is snow in these woods, but it is tons of spruce. Would I do better down by a body of water?? Just asking because I am obviously in a spot where there are either no grouse or I am terrible at locating them.
(FYI, a week before the snow, I went out twice and spooked a grouse both times, so there was at least ONE there before.)
