The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has released a brief status report on upland game in Alaska.

The report covers three species each of grouse and ptarmigan (but not blue grouse) and snowshoe hare.

Generally, populations are cyclically down. The bright spot in the picture painted in this snapshot is increasing populations of ruffed grouse translocated to SC Alaska in the late `80s and early `90s.
