I saw two in the 8500-9500 range. No shot.

A friend of mine shot #43.

The Caspian snowcock is native to eastern Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Georgia and has been introduced into the United States.[3]


I’d have to try in the US, because I ain’t never going back to the GAAT.


Yeah, I saw one up around Dahlonega. Didn't get a shot though.

Most people hunt Snowcock without dogs. We took ours for just that reason. We didn't see any sign below 10,000. The majority of sign and the only birds we saw were close to 12,000 feet which is where this picture was taken.
