I've been invited to go on a grouse/woodcock hunt in Gaylord, Michigan. We are going to drive and probably pull a camper. Late September/Early october. Not an exact date but looking like first week of october. Never been. I heard that the grouse in the North run on cycles? So is the cycle down or up this fall. Is the population based more on this or weather? Im green to this area of upland hunting. If anyone wants to give me an explanation that would be awesome.
