Grouse Hunting

Meadow Kouffeld was back with us this week talking about why the grouse hunt was so low.  Some think West Nile Virus may have a role in it.  Meadow is a regional biologist with the Ruffed Grouse Society and the American Woodcock Society. 

Meadow Kouffeld is the MN & Western Upper Peninsula Regional Biologist for the Ruffed Grouse Society and the American Woodcock Society.  She stopped by today to talk about the national grouse hunt in Grand Rapids and state drumming survey inconsistencies. 

She also had a practical, pointed reminder to deer hunters for this weekend's opening hunting weekend.  WEAR A HARNESS!

Each Friday morning Marshall Helmberger tells us some of the stories his newspaper, the Timberjay, has been covering.  The lead story this week is about a man from Nett Lake who found his grandfather's manuscript and published it.  It's called "Savage Ancestors" and was probably written in the 1930s.  Marshall also tells us about the Governor Mark Dayton's trip to Ely to talk water quality.
