Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock

The Ruffed Grouse Society held its 36th annual National Grouse and Woodcock Hunt this week in and around Grand Rapids.

The conversations were focused on grouse and woodcock, the Ruffed Grouse Society and the hunt - we were even able to get a look into how the birds are weighed and measured.
