any clubs or groups that go out for upland birds
looking to make some new buddies that share the same passion for preservation and hunting that I do not sure if thiers any groups that go for ptarmigan or rabbits. and by groups I don't mean killing rallies. usually go alone just moved to the Wasilla area and lookin to find some people that share the same love for the outdoors
There is a Ruffed Grouse Society chapter that hosts events and contributes to upland game management. I'm not aware of any alpine-type clubs for the ptarmigan specifically but likely the same folks would populate similar clubs. Rick Merizon, the small game specialist at ADFG, may know about a group that I'm not and worst case scenario is you get some phone or face time with THE resident expert on upland game.
RGS in conjunction with the Arctic Bird Dog Association just had a big fundraiser shoot over this past weekend over at McKenzie Point.
I helped out Saturday but had to work yesterday.
Great group of folks! You may find it a little hard to pin down folks right now as everyone's very busy at the peak of bird season. RGS Banquet will be in March and is a great time.
Here in Alaska the pointer and flusher folks work together to form a conglomeration to be more effective.
I've been working/training my GWPs in Chugiak through the North American Versatile Dog Association NAVHDA. Wonderful people and training begins in early spring and peaks just before tests in Chena/North Pole in August.
