Trigg, the ruffed grouse in the Valley were planted and last I hunted grouse there, it was hard to judge if they "took" very well. That being said I probably harvested 10 or 12 in 6 years of hunting grouse in the valley. They were spread out over a large area, just never seemed to find large numbers of them any place in particular. I harvested a few off of Fairview loop, a few out in the Point Mackenzie area and a few North and West of Wasilla. Spruce grouse is a different story, and one of my favorite areas was the Point Mackenzie area. They are thick out there. I've seen many flocks of 5 or more and one flock that was over 50.
