For Immediate Release
It’s no secret that Northern Maine harbors one of the finest upland bird populations in the Northeast, and one of the reasons why the Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) chose the region for its inaugural grouse and woodcock hunt.
Held out of the New England Outdoor Center, Fire Road 20D, Millinocket, Maine the weekend of November 8-11, the guided hunt is limited to ten hunters and at $750 per gun will fill up faster than a flushed grouse.
According to RGS regional director Tripp Way, registration consist of a “Meet and Greet” reception party on Thursday evening, 3 breakfasts, two field lunches and two dinners -- which includes a traditional Maine Lobster Bake on Saturday. Hunting hours will run from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Lodging will be at The Twin Pines Cabins.
Hunters are encouraged to bring their own dog or hunt with huntsmen’s dogs.
Thursday’s meet and greet will provide information on the terrain, followed by a Q&A session with RGS regional biologist Andy Welk.
A fifty-percent deposit is required by October 20, 2012, with remaining payment due prior to, or at the event. All major credit cards accepted, and with the exception of a $100 cancellation fee, refunds will be provided before November 1, 2012.
For more information and/or registration contact Mark Gray at 207-299-4172. Way can be reached at 607-743-0760; Welk at 607-793-4832.
Established in 1961, the Ruffed Grouse Society is the one international wildlife conservation organization dedicated to promoting conditions suitable for ruffed grouse, American woodcock and related wildlife to sustain our sport hunting tradition and outdoor heritage.
