R.A.M. Conference Center, Roscommon, MI
We are pleased to announce the 11th Woodcock Symposium scheduled for October 25-27, 2017 at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center in Roscommon, MI. Since the last symposium in 2006, timberdoodle enthusiasts have completed considerable work in Woodcock research, management, and conservation. The time is ripe to gather once again to share what has been accomplished over the past 10 years and to plan for the future of woodcock management. Please join us in October 2017 to rekindle old friendships and to share the latest information about woodcock! Registration materials will be available in early 2017 – Stay tuned! For more information, please contact Al Stewart, MI DNR Upland Game Bird Specialist, at 517-284-6221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
