JT - Keep at it, you'll learn more every time you get out. Look for grouse near gravel roads early in the morning, then look for stands of young aspen and aspen mixed with spruce/hemlock/pine or whatever type of conifers you have in the area. You might try to find an experience grouse hunter with dog to take you out. Join the local chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society and adopt an old grouse hunter. As for hunting away from logging roads, you can a good compass and handheld GPS and learn how to use them to avoid getting lost. I like to hunt under IFR conditions (I Follow Rivers)to help keep my bearings and avoid re-hunting areas. Usually the further from the roads and other hunters you get the better. Stay with it and you'll soon have your own hotspots you wouldn't tell your own mother about
