Thread: Turnagain Pass?

  1. #1

    Default Turnagain Pass?

    Anything there? Was wondering if its worth taking the time to go there and hike all over the valleys and mountains to find ptarms/grouse. Thanks,

    Gary

    Oh yeah, and you'll be surprised by what you find! Somethings will be expected and somethings will be a surprise.

    You'd better get up there and try it soon before it gets covered up with 25 feet of snow. I kept wondering about that area as I drove by on the way to the river this summer.

    years ago you could find some stuff on the snowmachine side. Ive made a few treks back and have come home empty handed this last couple of years. The granola cruncher side, for whatever reason, never has had anything.

    I am a granola cruncher and got two rock ptarmigan on "my" side of the valley about a month ago. They are usually up near the tops of the mountains and it's a bear to get up there (1-2 hours of alder 'schwacking), but I always see birds there, summer and winter. There's too much snow now unless you have snowshoes or backcountry skis and are well-versed in avalanche assessment and avoidance. I have never hunted the mechanized side of the valley.
