I could use some help. I've been up here from 07 when I was stationed at fort Richardson.
I didn't do so well last year with ptarmigan & grouse hunting. This year the duck hunting has been ok at best. I am a big waterfowl and small game hunt kind of guy. My cousin is coming up here for a business conference and is going to stay a couple extra days so we can hang out. I was hoping to take him out and shoot a couple critters. Since the ducks have been a flop so far this year, could anybody give me a solid pointer to get some ptarmigan or grouse?
I know nobody wants to give up their spots. We both grew up hunting and respect the sport of it and the etiquette. We would not share any locations or hunt out the spot. He will be leaving and I have a couple month old baby, so won't be getting out much this year if any.
In past I have hunted around Fairbanks, North Pole, delta junction, paxson, eureka, and anchorage/mat-su.
we are trying to stay around anchorage & mat-su, but if need be I will drive him up to eureka or something.
Mi would greatly appreciate some points in the right direction for my cousins visit.
Thanks guys and gals ~Ryan
