Ptarmigan hunting near Chugiak
Hey all need some help. My son wants to go ptarmigan hunting and I'm not sure where to go to look for these birds. I've stumbled on them while moose hunting, but not in abundance. Can you help me on a good spot to find them around the Chugiak/Valley area and what time of year to go looking?
Start hiking uphill now to find areas for next season. The season dates are near the back of the regs book. Most units in south central are August 10 to March 31.
Probably the closest is Chugach Park. They will be above treeline. Anytime from the season opener til snow makes access impossible.
