Research was conducted on sharp-tailed grouse in the Nebraska Sand Hills from 1958 through 1973. The purpose of the study was to obtain information and develop techniques necessary for effective management of the species. Habitat requirements, population dynamics, mobility, food habits and census methods were investigated. Results of the study were reported by Sisson (1975). On the basis of these results, recommendations on habitat management and spring population surveys were developed.
