The Grouse population is exellent here in Maine. The hunting pressure has no effect on their population. The Grouse are well suited to this climate and the habitat created by lumbering in Northern Maine.
The Ruff, from which the Grouse gets it’s name consist of one patch of black feathers on each side of it’s neck.

The courtship of the Grouse is outstanding and takes place in the spring. The male beats its wings from a rock or log against the air, not logs or rocks, which gives the drumming sound to atract the female. Drumming other than spring has no relationship to mating.
An adult male may weigh 1.5 pounds, occasionally up to 2 pounds. The Ruffed Grouse, a hardy bird, is the king of the game birds in Maine.
