Grouse Management Area just west of cabin toward Pomeroy Lake and Tenderfoot Creek (that vacinity). Verify GEM Maps. This is one of few in Upper Michigan. Area is called Blue Bill Creek.
With the help of hunters and partners the DNR has developed a series of intensively managed walk-in accessable ruffed grouse hunting areas called GEMS – Grouse Enhanced Management System GEMS provide adventure.
(information per www.michigan.gov):
GEMS provide adventure and opportunity for a variety of hunter types – youth, adults, new to the sport, and seniors because they offer a trail for those who prefer an easier walk, and those who want a challenge can adventure off the trail in search of ruffed grouse.
There are walking trails and aspen stands where grouse will most likely be found. Once comfortable in identifying the young aspen locations ruffed grouse prefer, hunters can expand their hunts to other areas for further adventures!
