Grouse

From the popular ruffed grouse to the spruce grouse, various types of this species can be found across Ontario. The ruffed grouse exists in greatest abundance, roosting clear across the province to the tip of James Bay.

There is ample time in the hunting season for upland birds. The province has a mix of road-accessible uplands and remote wilderness, as well as experienced outfitters to guide your hunt. They’ll provide everything from trip-planning expertise to complete hunting packages throughout Ontario, where the birds are as stirring as the landscape.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • Apart from having a keen wing shot, it is important to carefully consider your choice of ammunition. Under federal regulation, migratory gamebirds must be hunted with non-toxic shot, though lead shot is still legal for grouse.
