North Central Washington
~ Hunting Dusty and Ruffled Grouse
Hi guys, I hope your summer has gone well. Just wanted to send some photos from our grouse opener weekend- (between me, a friend and George from Stackhouse and Mousse) we hit about 15 dusky and ruffed grouse over 3 days!We were hunting in north central Washington, there’s a lot of empty public space out there. It’s not as high as our Cascades are there, normally I see mostly duskies and rarely ruffs but this was the opposite.~RichardFor those that don’t know–, these are forest grouse or mountain grouse.Dusky/blue grouse are northwest birds but ruffed grouse are the nature northern part of the continent. You see both in thick forests and blue grouse only usually above 4 or 5000 feet.The other American grouse species like sage grouse or prairie chickens or sharp tailed grouse are mostly plains or desert birds so that would be more likely what you’d see down your way.
