I have a question about what constitutes an aggregate of eight grouse after opening day if four is the daily limit. Is that eight in an aggregate of a group of hunters?

Eight in personal possession at a time, i.e. in my fridge? Do I need to eat those eight before shooting more?

Answer: 

Eight in the aggregate means each hunter can have a total of eight grouse in any combination of dusky (blue), ruffed or spruce, in his or her possession, "while in the field or being transported to final place of consumption or storage." The refrigerator doesn't count.
