“As you get into the second and third week of October, you need to start looking for dense shrub components that could be the under-story of a canopy . . . a lot of younger cuts don’t have it.”Ann Jandernoa – Northwind Enterprises
Where are the best places to look for grouse during midday when they seem to disappear? What habitat or things should I look for during late season when the ground is snow-covered but not so deep we stay out of the woods? Starting on September 15 and moving forward at 15-day increments, what changes about the type of cover that Ann would be looking for birds in? What changes do the birds make as the season progresses? How does Ann look at grouse and woodcock habitat differently? At what age does a cut become no longer worth the time to hunt?
These questions and more answered on this episode of the Project Upland Podcast with Ann Jandernoa of Northwind Enterprises.
