Turn in your grouse wings
Hunters can help biologists gather information on sage and sharp-tailed grouse populations by providing a fully feathered wing for each bird they harvest.
Hunters with a grouse permit will receive a packet in the mail with directions and a pre-paid return envelope. Hunters can get a packet at the nearest Fish and Game office. You can also drop off grouse wings at check stations or in wing barrels at popular access routes.
