Two days hunting minimum. Late season pheasant hunts occassionally are even better than opening weekend hunts. The season runs from the third week in October through late December. Grouse hunting season runs from mid-September to late December. It's not an easy bird to bag but from Thanksgiving on, success improves. Beginning in 1995, because of a demand for milder weather hunts and coordinating with other hunts throughout North America, an early season preserve hunt is offered September first thru opening weekend. Grouse season runs concurrently with pheasant season and has a 3 bird/day limit.
