Guidelines for the Management of Columbian Sharp-tailed Grouse Populations and their Habitats

The Western Agencies Sage and Columbian Sharptailed Grouse Technical Committee, under the direction of the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, requested a revision and expansion of the guidelines originally published by Giesen and Connelly (1993). This document provides a synopsis of current knowledge of CSTG ecology and presents updated guidelines for CSTG population and habitat management.
