Wild Grouse & Woodcock Hunting

Grouse hunting begins in the golden mornings of mid-September and lasts until the snow is deep enough to dust a bird dog's belly. Grouse hunters call it "chasing birds", but it's more than that. It's a blend of expectation and memory, of sights, sounds and smells as delicate as first skim ice on a pond, as loud as a short-barreled shotgun and as pungent as muck.

Spend the day chasing Michigan's wild and elusive Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock. Our experienced guides will show you some of the best upland cover in the state. With over 30 years of hunting experience, David McCool knows the best spots in the woodlands. Poplar cuttings, river bottom habitat and other classic upland bird cover.
