Fall color begins to show, an occasional crisp morning arrives — both are telltale signs that the hunting season opener for grouse, Minnesota's most popular game bird, is right around the corner.

"Here in Minnesota we have some of the best grouse hunting opportunities in the nation," said Ted Dick, forest game bird coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. "Our state has an extensive system of nonmotorized hunter walking trails, and much of our 17 million acres of forest land is open to public hunting."
