The Opportunity- A Story of a Woman Bird Hunter and Biologist

Written by | Bird Hunting Videos, Season 2

The Ruffed Grouse Society Presents The Opportunity a Project Upland Film.

Take a journey with Ruffed Grouse Society Regional Biologist Meadow Kouffeld as she shares what this fight for conservation entails. From her work with the Women’s Intro to Wingshooting to the daily workings of a biologist she brings us from her roots to her dedication to hunter recruitment and retention. This short bird hunting video is back dropped on a American Woodcock hunt in Minnesota with her Drahthaar in the beautiful Fall woods.

The Ruffed Grouse Society and American Woodcock Society is a non-profit organization that works to create healthy balanced forests. Their critical fight for young growth species from habitat projects to lobbying in Washington DC effects hundreds of bird, mammal and plant species. With education programs, local chapters, videos, and their award winning magazine they seek to increase the understanding of responsible forest management. An industry-leading $.89 of every member dollar enhances habitat and hunter access projects, young and new hunter initiatives, and public education on the importance hunters play in wildlife conservation.

    Meadow, very pleased to see more women in the woods chasing upland birds – well done! I hope my daughter will like it – she will get her introduction this Spring to shotgunning and then in late summer to Texas doves… we shall see. Keep up the good work.

  2. Another great piece on upland hunting, and the folks that enjoy it.

    Keep up the good work.

    Great video. Capturing good footage in the grouse woods is much more difficult than people realize!

    Only wish it was 60 minutes long……


    1. Luckily we will have 7 Feature films being released this year. Ranging from 30 to 1 hour run times. Including 3 major Ruffed Grouse productions. So stay tuned!

    As a woman hunter I loved the video! I hunt with a young GWP who could pass as your dogs twin, down to the white tipped tail. Keep up the good work! 🐾
    If you’re ever in the mountains of NC would love to meet a kindred spirit.

    Fine video, Meadow. I’m forwarding it to Kaitlynd, my GSP’s professional trainer and kindred spirit.
