Printed Grouse Habitat Maps and Digital Grouse Habitat maps for your Garmin GPS Units

Sometimes it is hard to see the forest for all the trees and we all know that locating key habitat is the first step in planning a successful hunt and getting there is the next step. Our products have been proven to help you with both of those steps.

For over 13 years we have been providing hunters with specialized topographical maps that identify game specific habitat thus eliminating the need for countless hours of driving and walking looking for places to hunt.

 Our maps are produced by a graduate forester and upland guide who knows the woods and how to identify productive habitat. The same maps we produce for hunters we also use for scouting new areas for our guided hunts, thus ensuring a quality hunt for our clients. 

We strive to provide services that save you time and give you valuable information that will help you pinpoint prime habitat instead of spending your time in non-productive habitat

     Guided Grouse Hunts

Hunt over close working guide dogs we trained specifically for Grouse and Woodcock hunting

Our goal is to provide our clients with the best possible upland hunt. What sets us apart from other guide services is that this is our full time job. Our business is centered year around on grouse and woodcock. No other guide service in Northern Wisconsin can say this. Other guides are part time. Some live elsewhere and come to the Northwoods at the peak of the fall to guide then return to where they came from. In the spring we do our own drumming counts survey with over 50 drumming sites located.

During the summer we conduct our own brood surveys for the areas that we hunt. Due to the extensive amount of mapping of aspen clear-cuts we do as part of our business, we know where the cuts are located that are “off the beaten path”.  We are constantly updating our aspen stand inventory records for new places to hunt in the four county regions around where we live. Our dogs are highly trained, close working guide dogs.  When fall comes we work hard to get our clients into areas that few others have been.

Northwind Upland Setters

Our dogs are judged by their ability to hunt the Northwoods for grouse and woodcock by demonstrating their worth in our guide business for us and our clients.

Our setters are quick learning and posses natural ability.  These setters are one of the nicest lines of hunting dogs  we have ever had the pleasure of working with.  

When the hunt is over they easily turn it off and become the embodiement of the setter laying by the fireplace on a cold winter’s night.  They are gentle, loving dogs. 

However don’t let that fool you becasaue when it comes time to hunt they are all business and possess a drive that will match or exceed anyother pointing grouse dog in the woods.
