I have been grouse hunting in Pennsylvania for at least the past 25 years and its been going progressively down hill, at least for me. As little as 5 years ago I could cover a few miles of desirable grouse terrain and put up 8 to 10 birds with a few good shot opportunities. But the past 2 or 3 years I'm lucky to put 2 or 3 birds up covering the same amount of ground. I know grouse populations run in cycles but I've never seen it this bad before. Any of you bird doggers struggling like me? I feel like I'm letting the pooch down. Did ok with pheasants last season though. I have been putting up more woodcock then past years too and I cant figure that one out either. I don't hunt them though because of their size. Appreciate any suggestions.
