The DNR is in the early stages of planning a relocation of EUP grouse to the WUP. It will not be a large project. The proposal is to trap and transfer 25 sharptail from various locations in Chippewa county to be relocated to Ontonogon county. There has been no resistance to this project. As soon as maple syrup season is over I will be looking for leks and trying to get the DNR permission to trap some in the farmland around camp. If you can help help by allowing the DNR to trap a couple of birds PM me or contact Dave Jentoft in the Soo office. The second relocation project involves relocating 100 sharptails to an area between a Grayling and Kalkaska. The UP tribes are not on board with this project so the grouse may have to come from Minnesota.
