    Me and my little brother each shot a ruffed grouse this year, both within a few hundred yards of eachother. Mine was a rooster and his was a hen. One was brown and one was gray. Is this another difference between a hen and a rooster? does it depend on the habitat in which they were harvested? Are these 2 different forms of ruffed grouse? Can anyone tell me these answers?

    I've heard the tail feather length rule as well, but have also been told that it is not always the case, I've also heard about a band pattern in the tail feathers but I can't remember what it was.
