Title:
Game Management in Montana, 1971; Shaptail Grouse Distribution Map - p 130.
Other citation details:
This layer was generated from a map depicting sharptail grouse distribution from the following source: Game Management in Montana. Montana Fish and Game Department. 1971 - pp 130.
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 0.015) and the sharptail grouse range was digitized as depicted on the map.
