Cougar, When I read it, I wanted to say along the side of a gravel road. Where our 80 acres is in northern Wisconsin, We have to drive a few miles off the main road. We typically see at least 3 of them along the road on the drive to the woods.
There is a guy from Alaska on taxidermy.net that sells breasted birds (AK rules) on the for sale section. I would bet he is probably be out for the season though. If you post in the wanted section on that forum, you may get a response. They don't have to be game farm birds in some States.
I've seen sage sharptails for sale on that forum as well, but I don't remember seeing sage grouse.
