Finally got a chance to chase some ptarmigan last week (it has been a busy winter). I followed tracks around for 2 1/2 hours on the snowshoes and finally found some birds and the way back to the parking lot. I found my dog to be gun shy and useless in finding birds. Guess he doesn't know he's half lab Hopefully I can get my seven year old son out there before the season ends.
