John B. Eichinger, the Ruffed Grouse Society’s President and Chief Executive Officer, announced today that Matt Soberg was chosen as the new editor for the Ruffed Grouse Society magazine.

“Matt was the best candidate due to his combination of outdoor writing skills and upland hunting experience. With a true passion for the outdoors and conservation, he has the knowledge and insight necessary to effectively communicate our mission,” according to Eichinger.

Soberg expressed gratitude and appreciation for being chosen: “I am extremely honored to be selected as the new editor and am excited to get started. The Ruffed Grouse Society magazine is a well-respected and effective voice for the organization. It communicates the true beauty of ruffed grouse and woodcock conservation, habitat and hunting through quality writing and photography. I support the society’s objectives and am thrilled to help us reach our goals.”

Soberg’s career includes a Juris Doctorate degree from William Mitchell College of Law and a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and sociology from the University of Minnesota. He was a law firm partner before publishing and editing the Minnesota Sporting Journal.

His writing was previously published by the Ruffed Grouse Society magazine, and he has experience as a regular outdoors columnist and fishing correspondent. He is a gun dog owner and grew up hunting ruffed grouse and woodcock in Central Minnesota.

Soberg will start by editing the Spring 2013 issue of the RGS magazine.
