Ruffed grouse in Missouri: Its ecology and management
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The ruffed grouse, Bonnsa umbellus, belongs to the same group of birds as the turkey, pheasant, quail and prairie chicken. It is the most important gamebird in many northern states, but recently it has been relatively scarce in Missouri. It is only found in extensively forested areas where habitat is suitable.
