Ptarmigan Hunting over Pointing dogs, a Swedish Highland Hunt
There are a few wild places left in this world, the Swedish Highlands in the North is one of those places, it overs what is the Formula 1 of bird hunting over pointing dogs, the chase for the elusive Ptarmigan. What few know is that is also one of the places that is home to what I see as the tripple crown of birds over pointing dogs. Black Capricalle, Grouse and Ptarmigan all in one place. Three different birds with diverse habits that it makes it hard to shoot them over one specific dog, but if you do, you know that dog is something special, throw in Woodcock on point and you have a extremely rare and capable dog, Woodcock however are not common on the Fjäll.
