Expert ruffed grouse hunter and host Barry "Bear" Drews has been guiding and hunting this section of Michigan’s UP for over 20 years. Bear says "This area has been blessed with some of the best grouse hunting habitat in the country, due to the vast wilderness and constant logging activity in the area. The annual logging harvest ensures new habitat growth year after year." Bear also runs a full service, year round 9 cabin resort on Lake Gobegic. With Bear’s extreme knowledge of the area and on how to hunt grouse, matched with several area maps for his hunters and a fantastic place to stay after a long day of chasing grouse through the woods, this is the perfect set up for a World Class caliber Michigan Grouse Hunting experience. Being lakeside don’t forget about the fantastic fishery available after the hunt. Bear says that the walleye fishing is fantastic right off the dock or bring your boat. Your dogs are welcome- outside dogs free. Inside dogs small fee.
A Typical Day:
Start your Michigan grouse hunt by waking up to a beautiful sunrise overlooking the lake. With full kitchen facilities available in your cabin, your breakfast preference is your choice. After a quick consultation with expert grouse hunter Barry "Bear" Drews and a couple maps of the area you should have no problem finding plenty of flushes in the area's mass public forest. One of the best features that Bear likes is that with 50,000+ acres of forest to hunt you will seldom run into another group of grouse hunters, even on opening weekend and with the amount of logging trails you will never have to hunt the same trail twice. After you get your limit of grouse, head back to the resort and Bear can give you a free consultation on where to catch some of the lakes monster fish! Bear says that the lake has big smallmouth, northern and walleye but most of his guests can’t wait to go after a 2 pound Jumbo perch! With the grouse cycle in the area currently at peak the 2012 / 2013 seasons will be excellent grouse hunting!
