Woodcock Banding at PGC
May 11-14, 2023
Every year Pineridge Grouse Camp offers a woodcock banding clinic for those interested in seeing how to band woodcock and potentially being able to get a permit from his or her state to band woodcock themselves the following spring. The dates for 2023 are currently set for May 11-14. These dates may change and it will be updated here and on pineridgegrousecamp.com.
YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!
You will be guided through a very informative power point program discussing the following:
- Why band woodcock
- Habitat needs for spring nesting
- Equipment needed to band
- The role of the pointing dog in banding
- Statistical data collected through the years of banding in the US
- Actually go out as help band
- And much more!
