2019 Webinar: Ruffed grouse and forest management
Ruffed grouse are an important game species that rely on healthy forest habitat to thrive. Managing forests for ruffed grouse also provides habitat for other wildlife species associated with early successional forests, including deer and woodcock. Despite their popularity, ruffed grouse populations are facing a number of challenges including West Nile virus and habitat. This webinar will discuss recent trends of ruffed grouse populations in Wisconsin and the Lake States and how forest management practices are integrated with the success of this popular game species.
