Taste

How good eating are grouse? How do they compare to other game birds? Is there a better species for flavor?

Thanks!

Better than pheasant, not quite as good as huns.

There are a number of different kinds of grouse. In PA, the hunt is for Ruffed Grouse. What kind gets hunted by you fellows and where?

In most places in the West, grouse means any of the forest grouse (ruffed, blue, or spruce grouse). Sharptail grouse are really limited any more. I prefer blue grouse and ruffed grouse, spruce grouse are harder to get and have to be cleaned right away.
