This is the first comprehensive guidebook available for bird hunters in Minnesota. Minnesota offers bird hunters classic grouse and woodcock hunting on enormous amounts of public land.



With abundant ruffed grouse, there is no better time to plan a trip to the Land of 10,000 Lakes. And as that name implies, the waterfowl hunting is also superb, with numerous wildlife production areas and accessible water. Throw in a smattering of pheasants, Hungarian partridge—and sharp-tailed grouse and plenty of hunting ground available to the public—and you have one of the best bird hunting states in the country. As with all of the tiles in the Wingshooter’s Guide Series published in Montana, this book includes detailed distribution maps and habitat information for each species of upland bird; county by county breakdowns of hunting opportunities; and hub city information, including hotels that allow dogs, local sporting goods stores, restaurants, car repair, and guides. Everything a hunter needs to plan a trip to Minnesota is included in this handy guidebook.

About the Authors

Dr. Roland Kehr lives in Brainard, Minnesota, “just a stone's throw away" from Wisconsin's fabulous ruffed grouse and woodcock hunting. He and his wife, Pat, enjoy life in the company of their three English setters. He does some guiding for ruffed grouse and woodcock. Most of his friends know that he spends more time at planning hunts and hunting than he does at dentistry.

Mickey Johnson moved to Minnesota in 1970 to hunt and fish, and to attend college. His current agenda consists of upland bird hunting, working with his dogs, photography, cooking, fly fishing and writing. He also guides for upland bird hunting, is president of the local Trout Unlimited chapter, and raises funds for the Ruffed Grouse Society. He is the author of Flyfisher’s Guide to Minnesota and a co-author of Wingshooter’s Guide to Minnesota.
