Title:
Game Management in Montana, 1971; Blue Grouse Distribution Map - pp 144
Other citation details:
This layer was generated from a map depicting blue grouse distribution from the following source: Game Management in Montana. Montana Fish and Game Department. 1971 - pp 144.
This map was enlarged to an 11 x 17 inch page with a photocopier. The enlarged map was then registered on a digitizer using county boundaries to define tics (rms error was 0.01) and the blue grouse range was digitized as depicted on the map.
