We've shot them and seen them in game unit 19 up in the fort collins area while grouse hunting. One day me and my uncle's were grouse hunting up there and this group was shooting like crazy. So we went to inspect and this group was shooting at Ptarmigan. So we kind of figured out where they were.
They are hard to find and see though because of there size and color. They seem to like the highest part of the mountain which makes it difficult if you are lazy like me. plus the season is too short. Stick to grouse they are easier and more plentiful.
Hunted them on cottonwood pass, the hardest thing about hunting them is getting to them. There usually above tree line and hang out in the rock slides. Once you find them, they are as dumb of bird you could ever hunt. I think one could actually catch one with his hands. Pretty birds however and know they are starting to turn white.
Ive seen tons of them while hiking way above treeline to go fishing.Above guanella pass,above rollins pass,above loveland pass.I've never seen one below about 12,000 ft.You can kill them with a rock,theyre so dumb.or trusting..
We haven't had one for a while so share what you are listening to lately! My choice is a lil 3 man band with a killer slide player along with a tight bass, a cross of the Black Keys meets Lucero....The Record Company!!! Enjoy!!!
It seems we have a few metal fans in this forum! I'm about ready to go on a 5-day camping trip to Steamboat Lake blasting this song getting me pumped! Had to share cuz this is a song I think even non-metal fans can enjoy.
