Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock Cooperator

Wondering if anyone is participating in this program?

http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal...=601998&mode=2

I would like to help them as best I can. How do you guys who are co-operating sending in the feathers from the bird? Do you just package them in individual envelopes and number them?

I have printed out the form and will be filling it out as necessary.

I do not send feathers in.

If guns cause crime, mine must be broken.

I have sent one sample in this year. If there is any flush on the feathers, I scrape it off or let it dry. I send the dried feathers along with the paperwork in the same envelope. Doc in Pa.

Re: Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock Cooperator

I'd like to participate but first I have to find a darned grouse near me here. Haven't had any luck with that yet. Rumor is they're out there around here though.

Yes , package them individually don't mix up the feathers from another bird. let them dry out first.

Re: Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock Cooperator

I have not heard about this until this thread. How long has this been going on?

Had I not missed the couple grouse today I may have been able to contribute.

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

I have been a cooperator for about five years. This is the first year we were provided with the info sheet and envelopes to send in grouse feathers. Doc in Pa.

Re: Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock Cooperator

I doubt I will be sending in too many tail feathers as I am still in the mounting the fan mode but will be doing as much data collection as I can. I have started my grouse log anyway, and it is as simple as just filling out the form.

I imagine the tail feathers will just be measured for telling the sex of the grouse?
