Late in the season, woodcock haunts are pretty much frozen and local and migrant birds have headed south. They may even be able to offer tips on the best coverts (areas with cover) within a given area. Combining data from the first four seasons of the grouse hunting log allows us to identify a region that stretches from the St. Lawrence Valley in the north through the Otsego-Delaware Hills and the East Appalachian Plateau in the southern tier where we observe flush rates (grouse flushed/hour) similar to or above the statewide average of 1.1 birds/hour (this is illustrated by the Wildlife Management Units highlighted in orange on the map). He is a moderate paced pointer that will gladly hunt all day long just out in front. According to the New York Department of Conservation, sometime between Sept. 2 when the grouse season opens in northern New York (and Oct. 1 in southern regions) and the close of the season on Feb. 28, about 75,000 hunters will take to the uplands in search of the state’s second most popular game bird. Flush rates were up in Appalachian Hills and Plateau, Adirondack and Tug Hill, Catskills and Delaware Hills, Champlain Valley and Lake Plains zones. Together the two properties offer about 11,000 acres of oak-pine forest, open fields, forest openings and pine barrens.

Early in the gunning season wherever there is water, such as marsh edges, creek bottoms, the banks of brooks, spring seepages and damp alder thickets, air temperatures are coolest and grouse are drawn to these locations. DEC biologists have supplemented existing populations of spruce grouse in New York to increase genetic diversity and help aid in the recovery of the State's population. To the north, in DEC Region 6, the Tug Hill WMA gets a lot of attention from bird hunters but time should also be invested getting to know the Indian River WMA in Theresa.
