With another Ohio upland bird season upon me I think about the prospects of this season. We have grouse hunting that is below it's potential due to an ever maturing forest base with little logging being done. A pheasant population that is put-n-take throughout most of the state and a quail population that offers iffy hunting available in only a handful of counties. A concerned group of upland sportsman have formed and the proposition we're placing is to work with the state to create an Upland Bird Habitat stamp and use the funds from this stamp for habitat acquisition and improvement for Ruffed Grouse, Pheasant, and quail in Ohio. This will be to assist WILD birds, no fund are to be used to supplement the current put-n-take pheasant program. We have also setup a Yahoo Group for those who are interested it can be reached at the following link: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OUBHS If you know someone who is interested that does not have email access or does not wish to subscribe to the Yahoo board, feel free to email me the name and address (snail mail so that we can add their information to our database so that they may be included in future information.
