"I explained the ptarmigan management system here in Iceland in my last post, that we are given 12 days spread over 4 weekends to chase the ptarmigan. Yesterday was my first and last day hunting ptarmigan this season and together with my uncle @eyjolfurgunnarsson
we reached the suggested bag limit for this season, bagging 13 ptarmigans on Skjaldbreiður. Skjaldbreiður is a lava shield formed in one huge and protracted eruption roughly 9,000 years ago. Truly stunning view and a beautiful day. The temperature was around 0 °C and mild wind, but as we reached higher altitude, around 1000 m above sea level, the wind was picking up and we got caught up in fog, and the guns were starting to freeze. Quickly we traveled down to around 700 m above sea level were we spent the rest of our day. Weather can change from good to bad within minutes at this time of year so it’s important to be prepared. In hunts like this Its so important to stay light because you are walking around 12 km each day but I never go hunting in the mountains without bringing a GPS, dry clothes, dry socks, extra batteries, a radio and enough food to be able to spend the night. What do you keep in your pack for emergency’s ? ________________________________________________________ @harkila_official
