I hunt grouse on the S.E side of Baker. Between the mountain and Baker Lake. The Swift Creek trail is good. Some cats in there though along with bear. Use a Ruger SP-101 n .22lr. Used to go just above the hot springs, but everybody in the world knows about that place now. Lots of problems with "tweakers" in there now. The other side of Baker Lake, driving accross the dam and up to the Watson lakes area is good. Also the area past Schribers Meadows cut-off is good once you get past the gate at the elk calving area.
