Temagami and Marten River is one of the
top ruffed grouse hunting spots in northeastern Ontario. Each fall, many
Ontario hunters head to Temagami for some of the best ruffed grouse hunting in
the area. The ruffed grouse is about the size of a small chicken. The bird is
noted for its fan-shaped tail marked by a broad, dark band. . The bird also has
a concealed neck ruff that the male puffs out during courtship displays.
Male ruffed grouse make a well known
drumming noise that sounds similar to a distant drum. He drums by beating his
wings in the air, starting slowly as a series of thumps, and then, as beating
speeds up, the sound resembles a drum. The drumming occurs on logs, boulders,
tree roots, or other elevated sites known as drumming logs.
Our proximity to the Nipissing Crown Game
Preserve makes Ravenscroft Lodge the perfect place to start your grouse hunt. A
beautiful walk through recently logged forest ground on the west side of Hwy 11
is a good area to start your hunt. The ATV trails and roads will also produce a
good harvest. Pay attention to fallen trees and brush where the birds like to
hang out and be prepared for the startling flap when you least expect
