Grouse Hunting Film Event Coming To Thomasville
A feature film on grouse hunting in America will be a highlight of an event on Feb. 8 in Thomasville, as Project Upland magazine and Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) host the Public Grouse Film Festival. It will take place at the Thomasville Center for the Arts.
“This festival will highlight upland bird hunts from across the country. Some lucky attendees will take home gear from onX, Eukanuba, Fishpond and Orvis,” said Nathan Henderson, of BHA.
A Project Upland article said, “The idea was simple: capture the people, places, and birds that make the story of grouse and public lands in North America so important to us. We sought to celebrate the truth that without public lands we would not know any of the grouse species in the capacity we do. They are a part of our culture, the fabric of American grouse hunting.
“We envisioned taking the film on the road to screen it at events in 20 locations across the lower 48 states. So, over the course of a few weeks in February and March 2020, powered by local chapters of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, #PublicGrouse will be shared as a celebration of our lands, our birds, and our stories.
“It is our hope that this film tour brings the community closer together and amplifies our public lands battle cry. As we face an uncertain future for grouse populations and hunting on public lands in the United States, it becomes crucially important that we are conscious of how the unique nature of public lands has given us the gift of grouse.”
