Woodcock Banding with Women Hunting and Fishing in partnership with Pineridge Grouse Camp!

Banding, Blasting and Blues Weekend is sponsored by Women Hunting and Fishing. It will be held May 19-20-21 at Pineridge Grouse Camp in Remer, Minnesota.  This event is geared to novice and seasoned women who are passionate about the outdoors.  Woodcock Minnesota, a 501 c3, will be giving a short seminar on how to band woodcock chicks and the biology of this crazy little bird. After the seminar we will listen to some blues by the fire, enjoy some stories and get ready for the rest of the weekend.  Saturday you will be paired up with dogs and banders to try your hand at banding a 1-14 day old woodcock chick.  It’s a great time to be in the woods, before the mosquitoes, the flowers are starting to bloom and morel’s “could” be around.  You will be able to watch many types of pointing dogs searching for hens and chicks to band.  Later in the afternoon we will shoot some sporting clays and finish up with a BBQ.  Bring your guns, ammo, boots and anything else you might need for this chance to learn more about the American Woodcock and the northern Minnesota woods in the spring. Price $300.

All meals, lodging and laughs are included in the price.  Please feel to bring any adult beverages you would like for the weekend.  If you have any question please contact us!
