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. They illustrate the necessity of keeping both the requirements and the habits of the wildlife species in mind, and the fact that good wildlife management is not contrary to good forest management.
