Wise men count grouse! Grouse are drumming in PA and now is a great time for grouse hunters to help your state wildlife conduct their spring drumming surveys. Most grouse states have these drumming counts so ask if you can help. Here’s how it works; you get assigned a route in national or state forests and you stop every 1/2 mile or so and listen for x amount of minutes and record the number birds you hear drumming. The best part is that they share data at the end with cooperators and you get out after grouse without hurting next years birds.
