The Grouse Camp Tour hasn’t seen the covers in Wisconsin since the inaugural tour in 2015. This fall Grouse Camp returns to Wisconsin as we invite you to join us during the first ever Grouse Camp Meet-up in Eagle River, Wisconsin, September 27th -29th.
Join RGS / AWS staff along with your fellow members at the first ever RGS Yard Sale event. Held at our organization’s headquarters in Coraopolis, PA on July 19th and 20th.
Drop into Pittsburgh for the weekend and enjoy the city. Maybe catch a Pirates game while your here, they’re at home versus the Phillies!
We welcome you to celebrate nearly 60 years of history with us while you search for unique memorabilia, apparel and hunting gear in support of Healthy Forests, Abundant Wildlife and Conservation Ethic.

The Wingbee is an annual event and culmination of the Wing-collection Survey. Here is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service description of the Survey and Wingbee:[Read more…] about The Woodcock Wingbee
