    Went out for our annual 3 day bird relocation project

    Typical early morning drive in.

    Nice looking sharptail country. How far north were you.

    Very nice.:tu

    What kind of birds are you shooting or targeting on this trip? Looks like you might have a chance at a couple of species of grouse, how about huns?

    This is in north central alberta - restricted access hunt on a military base at Wainwright Alberta. The only birds that are open are sharptails and ruffies. As this is mainly prairie grass land with brush we did not see any huns which would have been nice to see but no shooting.

    The sharptail populations in Alberta had taken a hard hit the last two years with tough winters. From what we saw the population is starting to rebound.

    Our southern seasons will be opening up in October and I am counting down for this.
