This paper updates the distribution and relative abundance of ruffed grouse (Bonasa umbellus) in Ohio. In 1998, ruffed grouse were reported in 40 counties covering approximately 31,450 km2 in glaciated northeastern and unglaciated eastern and southeastern Ohio. The relative abundance of ruffed grouse was rated as best-good in about 64% of this range and as fair-marginal in 34%. The occupied range of ruffed grouse in Ohio decreased 24% between 1982 and 1998 and the amount of that range with a relative abundance rating of best-good declined from 74 to 64%.
