Ruffed Grouse Society to host benefit habitat shoot

MIDDLEBURY CENTER — The Susquehanna River Valley Chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society will hold its inaugural habitat benefit shoot on July 15 at Thunder Ridge Sporting Clays & Game Farm, 619 Leon Brown Road.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will support projects to create young forest wildlife habitat on public lands in the central and northcentral regions of Pennsylvania.

The habitat shoot is open to the public. While the event is designed to be a “fun shoot,” awards will be presented to the top individual scorers in three classes –novice, hunter and experienced — as well as to the top youth, female and veteran shooters. There also will be team awards.

Registration fees apply for individuals or four-person teams. Youth registration applies for ages 17 and younger. The fees include one round of 100 sporting clays, lunch, beverages and a T-shirt for those who register early.
