PGC biologist to speak at inaugural RGS banquet in Williamsport

PGC biologist Lisa Williams and RGS biologist Dr. Linda Ordiway will speak at the inaugural banquet of the Susquehanna River Valley chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society at the Genetti Hotel in Williamsport Saturday, Feb. 18. Lisa Williams is leading the PGC study to determine if there is a link between West Nile virus and declining grouse numbers in the Keystone State.

Please consider attending to help make our first banquet a success and to raise funds for habitat improvement work in north-central Pennsylvania.

Details about our new chapter and the banquet can be found on our website, susquehannagrouse.com

I plan on attending. Great to see & hear this info firsthand and lots of awesome raffle prizes as well. Hope there's a good turnout so the folks putting in the time and energy to bring this event about will be encouraged.

I heard last call on tickets is coming soon. RGS membership is not required to purchase ticket/attend which can be done at www.susquehannagrouse.com/sportsmens-banquet/ Included with dinner ticket is "a bar drink ticket, door prize entry, hors d'oeurves, appetizers, multi-meat buffet meal, dessert, upland short-film screening, presentations from RGS, PGC and DCNR about PA state grouse status and about a proposed Drummer Fund project. Ample chances for raffles, and auctions". Some of the items I heard up for grabs- full mount grouse or woodcock taxidermy service, 1 full month of pointing dog training at Shady Hills Kennel, sporting clays shoot for several people w/ golf cart use, several guns, Orvis fly rod and reel, RST Shotshells, hunting gear, dog gear, young homing pigeons for springtime pick-up, 1-day retriever training day (train the trainer?), winery gift cards, outdoor gear, etc. The drummer fund project in question would be used as a pilot study that if successful could provide operating procedures to manage low-value birch and beech stands that are widespread on state forests through the state, in a way perhaps akin to commercial aspen stands in some aspects.

I'd considered staying home and just arguing on the internet, but that gets old and doesn't get much done.

I hope our HPA grouse experts aka: Lost Again & Dap attend so Linda and Lisa can console with them. As we all know, they are the true experts on grouse and probably everything!

Lisa Williams will be attending many banquets throughout the state. I exchanged emails with Lisa and went on a grouse hunt where she "tagged along". I will be attending a local banquet where Lisa will be speaking, as will LostAgain. I will suggest that the grouse season length vary by WMU, that she push the commissioners and PGC even harder for habitat creation and point out that her expectation that most grouse not killed by hunters in January will make it to breed in April may not be the case.

Will you and your sons be attending a banquet as well?

Jimbridger, I am having trouble understanding your post of "Hopefully Alt left his BP vest behind. Jester. Waugh!". Please explain.

Does it have anything to do with personal protection for our military?

For a good time, bring your checkbooks and appetites to the RGS tomorrow nite.

You are not having a hard time understanding. And I am not having a hard time knowing when I am being solicited for money. Like I tell all the solicitors send it in the mail and hope I am in a good mood when it arrives.
Do you think she is going to stray away from her presentation that she gave to the commission? Do you think it would matter what she hears now that the RGS sent a letter of support? OK Maybe. Just don't bet your checkbooks. Waugh!

Great presentation by the PGC and RGS personnel last night.
It looks like this new RGS chapter will be an active one. A couple HPA members put in countless hours making this event a success so Kudos to them. I'd be willing to bet that their "no pressure" format to the fund raising part of the evening was a great success as folks didn't have to feel obligated to spend a penny beyond the cost of the meal ticket. Lots of smiling faces afterwards and only heard positive remarks & answers to the info provided by the PGC Biologist/Forester/RGS Biologist & employees. I now better understand the criteria used by the PGC (much based on hunter input & surveys along with agency findings) in the decision to close the late season for the upcoming year.

Well they gave you their criteria for ending the winter season, did they also give the criteria for opening it back up? Did they answer questions, I have about a dozen to ask at our banquet next month.

Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.
