Grouse Hunting DogsGrouse are among the best eating of all game birds.  Young birds should be plucked and roasted, while older birds are perfect for Grouse MacNuggets.  They are the easiest game birds to age, not only in the feather but also plucked.  A grouse can be hung for 2-10 days.  Allow a whole bird per person.  Be sure to save the carcass for game stocks.

We have been fortunate to chase blue grouse, sage grouse, sharptailed grouse, and prairie chickens along the Sporting Road, and grouse hunting is our favorite time of year.
