The Tenth American Woodcock Symposium was held in Michigan at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center near Grayling, Michigan on October 3 – 6, 2006. The symposium was hosted by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

The woodcock symposia have effectively fostered communication of woodcock research and have proven to be the foundation for successful woodcock management internationally. Past symposia (prior to the tenth) have been held across the range of the species, in Minnesota (1966), Louisiana (1968 and 1997), Maine (1969), Michigan (1971), Georgia (1974), New Brunswick (1977), Pennsylvania (1980), and Indiana (1990). With each symposium, the quality of data, sophistication of statistical analysis, and originality of methods take a giant step forward.
