Some years back I go to the local fancy-dancy big chain hunting and fishing store for a Utah ptarmigan tag.

I ask the guy behind the license counter "I need a non-resident white-tailed ptarmigan tag."
He says "a what?"
"a white-tailed ptarmigan tag" I said
"a what?"
"a white-tailed ptarmigan tag"
The clerk says "What's a white-tailed tarma, tarmig...a what?"

"A small grouse, turns pure white in the winter"
"We don't have those........uh...Are you kidding me?"
"No, ptarmigan, p-t-a-r-m-i-g-a-n, I've been hunting them in Utah for years"
"We don't have 'em"
"Yeah, just bring up the upland game page on your computer and type in 'ptarmigan' It starts with a 'p'" I assured the grumpy SOB.
Again "What?"

The guy can't find ptarmigan on the computer. I'm sure he's not spelling it correctly.

"Hey, do you have a Utah Upland Game Hunting Guide?" I ask
Yes...excuse me, let me wait on this other customer. Can I help you sir?

10 minutes later:
"Could you look up white-tailed ptarmigan in the Utah bird hunting guide?" I ask the guy again.
Look up what?
"White-tailed ptarmigan; a non-resident white-tailed ptarmigan hunting license. They're free."
"We don't have them"

So I get the Utah Upland Bird Hunting Guide out and show the licensing "expert" the picture of the ptarmigan and he says:
"Nope, we don't have em. Excuse me, it's my lunch break"


I got a ptarmigan license online.

So help a guy out... I thought they were only found above the timber line in the Unita Mountains? Are they really out in Tooele county somewhere? I am intrigued by the idea of hiking through the Unitas to find them anyway, but confused by this Tooele talk.

So after we go fishing for Golden Trout in August we can stop back on the way home to bag some ptarmigan. Cast and blast!

116 days left till the opener.

No "waiting for the CC hits" thingie with Utah ptarmigan. No bonus points needed.

Just amazing, the tags are free....uh..but not on sale yet. Now I'm mad.

Hey, where's everybody going this year?

Don't forget you need a white-tailed ptarmigan in order to complete your Ultimate Utah Upland Game Slam (UUUGS)


The DWR says: When you harvest game animals for a slam, take a picture of yourself with both your slam card and harvested animals visible. Snap shots on a phone, etc. are sufficient; there is no need to print the photos to redeem your slam.
