Yeah, they are up here, Infact, they are even the State Bird (Dunno what the hell they were thinking :hammering: ).
You were close, it is "ptarmigan" pronounced w/ a silent "t".
Yeah, they are a blast to hunt. They are closely related to ruffed grouse. We have plenty of both up here
Infact, my first kill ever, was a ptarmigan, I was 5 :salude:
Anymore ?'s, feel free to ask away!!! I like getting posts in here ( I may even have to go check out another state forum too
