Product Description

2017 Annual GNA Fall Conference

Oct 26,27,28,29

Pine Ridge Grouse Camp (PRGC)


Pineridge Grouse camp is located in Cass County ,MN. A premier destination for ruffed grouse hunting. Cass County has been managed by the forest service for years to establish good ruffed grouse and woodcock habitat. Over 500,000 ruffed grouse are harvested annually in Minnesota.  The grouse numbers are in the upswing of their cycle. Numbers were up 17% last year and a similar increase is expected this year.  There are also good numbers of local and migrating woodcock.  Woodcock sit tight for pointing dogs and are great for training young dogs.


People will be housed in Guys and Girls cabins. 

There are a limited number of husband & wife cabins available on a first come first serve basis.

PGC cabins will be filled first, then 2 on site RVs and finally any overflow  housing needs and RV campers will be located in a clean  Mom & Pop locally owned hotel located approximately 10 miles from PRGC.

Limited PGC RV & camping spots available, limited electrical hookup.


NOTE: If you would like to reserve a couple’s cabin call Jerry directly.

If you would like to stay at the Hotel instead of Grouse Camp, please contact Jerry directly to reserve a hotel room. You will still register on line and pick up the keys from Jerry at PRGC when you arrive. Everything will be billed through PRGC. You can leave credit card information at the hotel for incidentals you might charge at the hotel, but the room is billed through PRGC. The hotel is included in the package price.


This has also been included in the information I have been emailing out since February. 

So you might want to add some other registration links?
