The Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) has their own mix of seeds and legumes for grouse habitat. The "Trail Mix" includes legumes, chicory, red, white and crimson clover, alsike clover, and birdsfoot Trefoil. You can order it right on the RGS website. It comes in 6lb. bags, which according to their instructions, will sow a half acre. The cost is $32.00 per bag, plus S&H. We have planted plenty of clover around our place but I'm thinking of getting some of this next spring and giving it a try. I love to have grouse around. I get a lot of opportunities to photograph them and I love to hear the males drumming in the spring. I like that this seed is formulated especially for grouse.
