I am a VT partridge hunter. It seems there has been less logging in the areas that I hunt but still a reasonable number of birds. Anyone else here a partridge hunter?

Young forest is the best place to find them. I hunt a lot of regenerating timber cuts. The best places that I have hunted have been regenerating pasture land but that is hard to find. I have a young dog that I am working on training that I hope to take out for partridge this fall.

Logging roads thru old cuts always seem to hold birds. Early season apple orchards that you have to walk in to, not the roadside ones, always hold a bird or two. And if it’s a good beech year you can sometimes find em out in the hardwoods eating nuts...

Good advice, thanks. I mostly hunt the National Forest land and finding cuts is not easy. I with they would do more logging.

I hunted over the weekend and the grouse were really scarce in the covers that I hunted. I am starting to be concerned about the future of grouse hunting.
