Sharp-tailed Grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus)
Uses

Although a large portion of the grouse harvest occurs incidental to other hunting, some specialized methods are used in taking the individual species. Ruffed grouse and sharp-tails are more difficult to hunt, unless one has a dog. However, these species can sometimes be found “budding” in the tops of aspens and birches in late fall and winter.
