Well, I went out after the blue or "sooty" grouse as we now call them. I found 4 birds and 1 was really cooperative. He circled me displaying for over an hour and I was able to get a lot of different shots. Sometimes they are on the ground but oftentimes they stay in the tree all day. You can go home empty handed or try another tactic... I recommend trying birdjam or sounds with these grouse. The hoots get them started so you can locate them. Once you get close, female grouse coos and wing flapping get them out of the tree. Be careful as you must get within 20-30 yards of their tree without being seen. This often takes camoflouge and you must circle the tree triangulating the tree he is in. It often takes about 2 minutes to get them excited enough to get them out of the tree.
