Minnesota has long been recognized as one of the leading states in ruffed grouse and woodcock populations. It is home for our ruffed grouse and woodcock camp, the foundation for all our bird hunts. We hunt 35-40 days each fall from September through October. Our hunting coverts in central and northern Minnesota are made up of aspen cuts, swamp edges and a pine mix of habitat. We do not guarantee easy shooting. Quite the opposite, in fact! The covers are thick and shooting opportunities fleeting. You will be challenged. Steve keeps 6-8 setters on the truck each day, hunting a brace of setters that sweep the cover with speed and grace. The finesse and manners of these setters provide our hunters high quality shooting. They're staunch to point, steady on game and hunt for the gun, they will mesmerize you.
