Ruffed Grouse Society

The Susquehanna River Valley Chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society will hold its third annual Habitat Shoot Saturday, Aug. 3, at Thunder Ridge Sporting Clays in Middlebury Center.

Proceeds from the fund-raiser will support projects to create young forest wildlife habitat on public lands in central and north-central Pennsylvania.

While prizes will be awarded to the top team and individual shooters, the event is designed as a fun shoot, giving participants the opportunity to sharpen their shotgun skills prior to the upcoming small game season.

Registration is $70 per person ($50 for those 17 and under) and includes one round of 100 sporting clays, a hearty lunch sponsored by Shell, beverages and a free T-shirt for those who register by July 22. Cost of entry for a four-person team is $260, and attending and non-attending station sponsorships are available.

Additional details about the event, directions to Thunder Ridge Sporting Clays and online registration for the shoot can be found on the Susquehanna River Valley RGS chapter’s website at
