Question for you grouse hunters, friends of mine tell me that they drive the back roads in the sandy lands area for grouse and when they see one they jump out of their vehicle and pursue the bird is this legal?

Actually under the law, it is "Not Legal" although pretty well all grouse hunters do it (myself included, many times).
here's what the Hunting Guide states on Page 23:

It is illegal to hunt from a vehicle. For example, a vehicle may
not be used to search for, locate, “push bush” or to flush out
game under any circumstances. Vehicles may only be used to
transport hunters, supplies or equipment to or from a hunting
area. In most, but not all areas, vehicles may be used to retrieve a
big game kill by the most direct route.

Why wouldn't it be legal.....what's the suspicion??? see the grouse, get out, load your gun go after it ....it's all good....and legal. A vehicle was used to transport the hunter to the particular hunting spot.

I see well I'm just gonna walk it I guess. Just gotta find a good spot for walking.

Thanks again
The only problem you will run into is the quads and trucks that will drive past you after you have already walked a mile down a trail! Very frustrating!!

Just head east past Richer, find a logging road and follow it until you find a smaller trail and walk along there. The spot might be good or a bust but you'll have seen some new country and that's bigger to me then the birds

Alot of people go in and around the seddon's corner area, I find (And I think alot of you guys will agree) that early morning and evenings usually yield the best hunts, I like it once we get some frost and the leaves fall off, lets you see in the bush alot more plus you can get the "Crunch crunch crunch" of a grouse running across leaves. have fun.

Tons of areas you can go grouse hunting, the best thing about it is that is requires no set up, no planning and it's a very relaxing way to spend the afternoon. For myself, I will go waterfowl hunting in the morning, come back have breakfast then spend the rest of the day wadering around the bush looking for grouse.

Same idea here, but I prefer brush pants to "waders" while searching for grouse. :lol:

Ya similar event for me, I just saw some movement in a tiny patch of brush, this grouse found himself the only dry spot around, thought it was a muskrat or something just wanted to sate my curiousity then it flew up and that was the end of that lol. :shotgun:
