|The grouse downturn doesn’t make sense|
By Kurt Krueger
THINGS just don’t add up properly in the 2012 Ruffed Grouse Drumming Survey that was released last month by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), so it’s time once again to discuss my favorite bird.
DNR biologists are comfortable with drumming count results that showed a 26% drop in the northern forest region which, quite frankly, makes no sense at all when you read the rest of the report.
This grouse was drumming on his favorite log in early May just east of Three Lakes, hoping to attract hens for breeding. —Photo By The Author
