Grouse Hunting in Michigan Will Get You on the Birds

This team does some great grouse hunting in Michigan through fields and forest.

If you want to get into some great upland game, try bird hunting in Michigan.

If you time it right and find good habitat, you will be on some hot action like this duo.

Grouse as a game bird sometimes get overlooked as upland hunters pursue their flashier cousins, the Ring-Necked Pheasant. Grouse, however, provide challenging hunting and some of the finest table fare you can find in small game.

One tactic I have used this fall to get into less pressured areas is to canoe along smaller rivers to get into some bottomlands. You can almost silently slip into an area, get out and hunt some cover that probably hasn’t seen hunting pressure in years. If you have a retriever, just make sure he is used to riding in a canoe to avoid getting dumped while paddling.

Get out this season and try some grouse hunting; you will be after some of the tastiest game you can pull out of the northern woods.
