Every day the boys have come back from their escapades up the valley with ptarmigan for us to fry up and eat. They have been delicious and I have very much enjoyed eating them but I asked them when do I get a chance to hunt some ptarmigan? Tomorrow! So today I had to practice shooting. We set up some targets on the lake, got out a 22 long rifle with open sites and a 22 magnum with a scope and I actually hit some of the targets.
Now I am ready for our hunt. Hopefully tomorrow will be as beautiful as today and we will be able to ride up the valley and look for those small, white birds.
