Another indicator that the grouse cycle is up will be the number of Kentucky plates parked along the roads.
You ain't joking there! The first time I went up there that’s all you saw was KY tags! But I'll soon be joining that group on next years trip up (2010)
I am also sure there will be more hunters up there this year I did not get to go last year but in 2007 there was a lot of hunters and one of my hunting buddies said that number went up to in 2008. But in 2007 I never had any trouble find a place to hunt there is so much land up there and of course people are going to pound the easy spots and they can have them. I did learn one thing though NO HUNTING ON THE WEEKENDS I'll never try that again that’s when its crowded for sure. We tried it on a Sunday one and its was crazy then on Monday it was totally different like night and day. So we take our time on the drive up and leave on Saturday night and arrive up in the day on Sunday and then start hunting on Monday. My buddy and I will be up there from Oct 18 to 24. I think I will like going up later in the month we normally go up the first of Oct. But as I've said before its an awesome time weather you get into a lot of birds or not. I'm really looking forward to it.
