I think all the "rules" allow most of us to go out by ourselves or in a small group......if so, it's a great time to observe some unique forest wildlife behavior in northern Michigan.....
Perhaps it's a good time to get out at dusk to hear/see American Woodcock males peent in an opening next to some young aspen?
Or go into some mature mixed conifer/deciduous woods to hear/see male Ruffed Grouse drum on a large, rotting log in the early morning?
Or see male and female Sandhill Crane unison call and dance in pine openings or in hayfields?
Or go to the eastern UP (when allowed) and see male Sharp-tailed Grouse dance in the morning in pine openings or hayfields?
