This week I had the kids motoring around out on the tundra, we checked out a couple good spots for rabbit and Ptarmigan though they were all hunted out form all the sno-go tracks.
we were takeing a wide loop back to town when i spotted them all familure ptarmigan outlines (look like big chunks of snow where ther shouldent be any) we managed to motor close on the ole puma and shut er down. the boy's tried to stalk closer but bogged down in that rotten April snow they did manage to plug a couple after a couple engagements
the birds flew across the ravine, kids learned that these close to town birds dont stay put and wont let ya get closer than 50 yards, they were excited and woulda chased them birds across NorthWest Alaska if they had there way.
The kids were all talking excited on the way home and planning the next trip out
one wants to use a shot gun, one a scoped .22, the little one wants to wear her glasses next time so she could shoot to.
