I haven't hunted everywhere, but have hunted allot of places, and was just curious as to where your favorite place to chase birds was.
Woodcock travel along rivers. They fly at night. The best woodcock cover is forest along a river with an open field/hay field along the forest edge. The birds will eat worms at night in the field and hide in the cover during the day until they resume their migration.I've never hunted woodcock, but I can't wait to. I put "bog" as a potential choice for the doodle hunters. But lowland forest makes sense. I was thinking grouse when I put that choice in, but I suppose they do hang out in similar cover.
I'd say that's lowland, but to each his own I suppose. Was thinking more where I hunt for blue and ruffed grouse 8-10k feet.upland dan,
We do not actually have high mountain forests in Pa, however they are not low land either. I checked high mountain forests because our Pa forest are extremely old and about 3000 plus feet high of rugged terrain. Great Grouse & woodcock habitat.
all the best,
