Went on an extended-long-weekend sheep hunt over Labor Day near Cantwell. After spending days flushing dozens and dozens of ptarmies, I couldn't take it any more. So on the way back to camp the last night in there, I took a couple opportunities and neck shot three birds for some of the best ptarmigan stew I've ever had. It's hard to beat fresh meat after days of mountain house (mutton would have been even better, but alas). I've got to get back up that way properly outfitted for birds sooner than later.
Heading down to the peninsula this weekend for some serious bird hunting. Hope to find some ptarmies in a couple areas I've been curious about. Good luck to anyone else getting out of the house this weekend!
