First, I live "way down here" in Upper Michigan. LOL
I'm coming up to AK this fall on a caribou hunt and thought I'd like to take a few ptarmigan back with me to have mounted.
Reading the regs, in GMU 26 you cannot use lead shot.
So, what size steel shot would a guy want to use? I don't know if I'll find birds I gotta whack with a stick to make fly or birds that will flush at 50 yards or more?
I was thinking 1 oz of #6 steel in a standard 12 guage might work.
