Your New Brunswick Ruffed Grouse hunt at Island Lake Camps will take place over miles of remote and prime game bird country-these second growth areas combine a mixture of hardwoods-predominantly birch and poplar,with a mixture of fir and spruce thickets providing ample cover -topped off with a steady supply of water in the area from several small streams and springs all combine to produce a healthy population Ruffed Grouse from year to year. Spruce Grouse and
both native and migratory Woodcock may also be taken in these hunting areas.
Our remote location sees light hunting pressure compared to most other areas in New Brunswick,while still only being less than 2 hours driving time from the Canada / U.S border.
