Not out for secrets, but I've been doing a bunch of research trying to figure this out. Not much info from the DWR about forest grouse in Ashley Forest. The area looks good to me but I haven't found much yet. Do any of you out there find blue/ruffed grouse with any consistency on this forest north/east of vernal? A simple yes or no will do, but if you don't mind, perhaps some information as to elevation and/or habitat attributes where you find them would be appreciated as it will give me some direction as to where to search. Thanks. Any PM'd info will be held with strict confidence.

look around water and berrys. looke in the pines trees and the qakes trees with this stuff mixed in and you should find soem of both. the higher up you go better finding the blues the lower you will find ruffs. hope this helps.

There are plenty of grouse in that area.

Ruffed grouse: 7000 ft. Near water and as said before, they love berries.

Blue Grouse: 7000 ft. and up (preferably higher). I seem to find blues consistently on the saddles and ridges of steep, pine covered slopes. They can be anywhere though. Ive shot both blues and ruffed out of the same flush.
