Hunting for wood grouse and black grouse



Spring hunting for wood grouse and black grouse are held during courtship season of these birds. In spring there are two ways of hunting for wood grouse: in the evening during tree courting and early morning , when cocks starts singing. The most interesting for a hunter is to hunt stalking at song. The hunting starts very early (about 1.30- 2.00 a.m.). Hunters stalk courting wood grouses during the last phase of their song, when a bird becomes silent, a hunter makes 2-3 steps. The hunter can approach to wood grouse even up to 20 steps, but the most secure is the distance of about 35 meters. Wood grouses sing most often on trees, rare on ground. When it starts to dawn in the forest, the hunter should be ready to shoot.

For black grouse we hunt from prepared specially boxes or shacks in permanent courting places. These hunts can be combined with evening hunts for woodcock during courting fly. Hunting is organized for groups of 3- 4 hunters.
