I too, will be going to the UP of Michigan for a grouse/woodcock/duck hunt, scheduled for October 17-21st. It certainly doesn't help the state of affairs when this year the DNR again lowers the total number of pheasants they are releasing statewide. I wish they would require a stamp or extra license already and invest the money back into it, just like they do waterfowl.
Heading to SD in November, and possibly Iowa in December. May try to find some time to get to MI in the next couple weeks. Been training all summer long, my brother and I each have new pups.
