Much better meat than any duck. Capercaillie (wood grouse) is my favourite.

I agree with beatarmy-

I hunt ruffed grouse and they taste just fine. The strong taste that they can sometimes have is from whatever they are eating (whether it be pine seeds, sage seeds). Sometimes you can smell if the bird meat is going to be strong. If it does smell strong, I find it best to just breast the bird and remove the legs, and soak the meat in saltwater overnight. this tends to get rid of the game flavor.

Good luck!

I grew up eating ruffed grouse and it was some of the best meat I can remember eating. I shot a lot with a savage camper special 20 gauge off my honda 250 enduro. It was a daily thing to hunt grouse in the eavings after school.

Early season blue grouse might be the best to eat ever, they would be eating mostly berries. late season, not so good.

Ruffed Grouse and Spruce Grouse are fantastic. Do not over cook or you will dry them out.
