    My new neighbor just arrived from South Dakota.  He's got a pretty shorthaired pointer and a yellow lab for flushing and retrieving.  The poor bastard looks like they just dropped him off at prison.  Anyway, I'm looking for some spots to get him into some birds without having to drive back to SD.  I realize guys don't want to tell people about their good hunting spots but even a general location would be good.  The guy has the hounds, if there's some birds there, we'll get 'em.  Thanks for your help.

    Just about anywhere in the Chequamegon Nat'l. Forest will yield grouse, especially if you have two well trained dogs. One thing I would caution is to have your buddy practice shooting. Shooting ruffed grouse in thick forest is a lot different than shooting pheasants and sharpies in the Dakotas. You have about half as much time to shoot and the leads have to be short. There are lots of places but I like the area around Miller Dam Flowage. Always lots of drumming and it's pretty actively managed for logging so there is always good grouse habitat. Good luck!

    I've had pretty good luck just Northswest of Tomahawk on some public land. Honestly, I don't even know what road it's on. It is about 5 miles West and about 2 miles North. Not that far out of town. Good cover and pines close by as the season wears on.

    That Tomahawk area is a real good spot for grouse too. Pretty much that entire area is loaded with good grouse cover. Find the cover, find the grouse.

    I've heard good things about the Brule river forest, and when I've checked it out on google earth it looks like lots of poplar birch, always solid bets for grouse. 47,000 acres of public land there, and right down the road from chequaemgon.
