The Ruffed Grouse Society and American Woodcock Society is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote forest diversity for neo-tropical birds. The fight primarily focused on early successional habitat which in most parts of the country is roughly around 2% (science indicates a balanced forest should be around 10-15%). Through education, film, hunter recruitment, and boots on the ground conservation, they have made impacts throughout the country for abundant wildlife.
This film was made possible by the Cabelas Outdoor Fund: Millions of Cabela’s customers have combined their spare change by “rounding up” their purchases at our stores to promote and protect the future of hunting, fishing, camping and recreational shooting.’
