So I've been excited when the snow got here. I have been wanting to hunt this bird I have heard so much about. The Ptarmigan. Never done any hunting before, so me and my boy head to the Thompson pass from Valdez. We drove slowly from blueberry lake to worthington glacier. Never even seen a ptarmigan before but we saw a flock of about 30 birds.
Getting excite that we might get a chance to take a shot at a few we got out of the car only to realize that the snow was about 4 feet in some spots and to deep to move on. Disappointed me and my son trudged back to the car. Hopefully we can score some snowshoes and head out again soon.
Do ptarmigan come down to the city or will our best bet be on the pass?
