    I remember vividly hunting the over grown with cedar trees cow pastures at Ferlas Cedarmere Inn in Blairstown 55 years ago with my dad. The Grouse where everywhere. Even the woods of Stokes State Forest held hundreds of birds. Glad they closed the season. Many of us today have never seen or heard the flush of a Grouse.

    Without fixing the habitat and controlling raptors and cats not much is going to change.

    As usual the State is late to reading the signs. Here in the pines as kids we would catch them swimming in the sugar sand roads in the rising sun, low land of transition to cedar swamps and blue berry field edges. They were so quick we rarely bagged one, and they were so starling in their explosive flush you jumped out of your skin. They were mostly a secondary target for us because rabbits and squirrels were more abundant targets for 14 yr old boys. I haven't seen a Pine Pheasant, as we called them in twenty or so years and I live in prime Grouse habitat. Also the Woodcock sightings are becoming scarce.
    Give a begger a horse and they'll ride into hell everytime

    The grouse story is the same for a number of states. Here we have far too many aging forests that need to be selective cut to produce understory. With the number of tree huggers in the state that will never happen. If you want to hunt ruffs like we did back in the 60's and 70's you need to visit to UP of Michigan or Wisconsin.
