Anybody participating? PGC study...

Is anybody participating in the PGC's "Grouse feather collection survey" or the "Grouse Habitat Survey"?

I sent in two envelopes with feathers. I did not contribute to the habitat survey.

PAGSPHUNTING...I think they only sent them to hunters on the PGC Cooperators List. The Cooperators List is where the PGC gets their info on flushes/hour in each region. I have not participated in that survey in many years but they still send me the information each year. This year, Lisa Williams, the PGC grouse/woodcock biologist added several surveys. The one that I thought has interesting has if you harvest a grouse, they want you to send a middle tail feather, a few rump feathers and the 4 outer primary feathers on the wing. I believe they will use this information to age and sex each grouse to determine recruitment in this years population.

Doug, I also am not going to do the habitat part as it is too involved but am going to participate in sending feathers. I have about 15 birds I have ready to send in so far.

If anyone is interested, call the PGC office at 717-787-5529 and ask for envelopes and instructions. I think it is a worthwhile survey and they can get a lot of good information from it (I hope). I am surprised it was not on their website though.

Re: Anybody participating? PGC study...

It would be nice for the PGC to do drumming counts. I don't believe in those paper questionnaire surveys LW sends out to hunters. They should not serve as scientific data. Not a fan!

Other states do drumming counts and have a woodcock banding program. These are the things we should be pushing for. Nice to have a change if you know what I mean...

Re: Anybody participating? PGC study...

Just another year of completing the survey for me. I will send feathers if requested in the survey packet... didn't open it yet- I wait until the end of the season and fill it in from my log.

Watch and change the setting to 720 HD

If guns cause crime, mine must be broken.
