Excellent Grouse, Bear, and Deer Hunting in the Heart of the Chippewa National Forest

Hunting near Kokomo Resort is spectacular with all the federally-owned land of the Chippewa Forest right in our back yard. (And we mean literally in our back yard.) Grouse hunting on the many old logging roads and trails in the area is nothing less than awesome! You can hunt on so many different trails it would take weeks to walk on all of them. The best time is when the leaves and cover are gone. There is also excellent bear hunting and deer hunting.
