Price County, Wisconsin – ‘Ruffed Grouse Capital of the World’

Wisconsin has one of the largest ruffed grouse populations, and Price County is right in the center of the Northwoods, with over 300,000 acres of huntable land. Park Falls claims to have the most habitat for ruffed grouse anywhere, making it the “Ruffed Grouse Capital of the World.”

The grouse are found throughout the forest with populations in young and old aspen trees. Aspen is common in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Clumps of evergreen trees interspersed among the aspens provide ideal hiding places for the grouse. Miles of mapped hunter walking trails have been developed. The trails are seeded, mowed and gated to exclude motorized vehicles. With acres of managed habitat developed in conjunction with the Ruffed Grouse Society, there’s no better place to hunt them than in Price County. You’ll also find white-tailed deer, black bear, wild turkey, small game and bird species.
