The ruffed grouse is the most important upland game bird of the forested areas of the northern and eastern United States. Its numbers can be increased through reduction of mortality on existent ranges and through the creation of additional satisfactory ranges. Management measures for the accomplishment of these purposes are indicated by researches carried on for the past seven years. Certain of these measures are described in the following paper.
