RGS and AWS Videos

The hunt is on, and the Ruffed Grouse Society is launching the RGS 2014-2015 Video Contest - an opportunity for members to capture footage of their ruffed grouse and American woodcock hunts and have their videos appear on this website. The leaves will be falling soon, and the hunting season can only get better. Consider taking your video camera along on the hunt - collect footage of your forest adventures, dog work and hunting camaraderie. This is a great chance to share your fall experiences with fellow RGS members. You might also win a means of taking future action video!
