Can we bring a shotgun to shoot ptarmigan?

Shooting ptarmigan might hurt your Alaska caribou hunting.

Sure! It is Ptarmigan season up here during the time of your hunt, and they are generally everywhere.

But, we should warn you that shooting at the birds will likely scare away the caribou.

Soooooo… it’s up to you – after all, caribou or moose is the main reason for your visit and we don’t want you to come away with just a handful of feathers and no antlers! Or, bear the scorn of your fellow hunters for scaring the game away.

Also, from a girl’s perspective, they are really pretty that time of year as they are changing from their feathers from brown to white, something that would show off nicely if you know a good taxidermist – just not as nice as that big set of antlers.
