The Ruffed Grouse Society recently released its Project Upland film series. These short films are a must-see for any hunter.
Grouse hunting is a pursuit of traditions. Hunters head afield each fall, their blaze orange matching the leaves around them. Likely, a dog is working ahead of them, searching frantically for the fresh sent of grouse or woodcock. It’s precisely these things that the Ruffed Grouse society hopes to encapsulate in their new upland initiative.
“This multi-video production celebrates those experiences we treasure in the grouse woods – stories and cherished memories that are essential to engage the next generation of grouse hunters and conservationists,” writes the Ruffed Grouse Society.
Two films, ‘The Experience‘ and ‘Because They’re Wild‘, have already been released. They follow two different hunters, each with their own style and reason for hunting these upland birds. However, the video quality, scenery, and stories in each are amazing. A true connection with the sport’s past, present and future is established.
More films will be released each week through the end of February. I personally can’t wait to watch them all. If you have any interest in upland hunting, hunting in general or wilderness, these films are a must-see.
