Alaska Upland Bird Hunting
When most people think of Alaska, they think big game hunting or fishing, but Alaska upland bird hunting can be pretty awesome too! This amazing state has several species of ptarmigan, ruffed grouse, sharptail grouse, spruce grouse, and blue grouse.
Why You Should Consider Alaska Upland Bird Hunting
- Hunt unique species of upland birds that aren’t available in most of the lower 48.
- Long seasons starting in late summer and going through to spring.
- Generous bag limits.
- Good bird numbers, low hunter pressure and great success rates.
- Combo with waterfowl hunting and/or fishing.

We hunted birds for three days and since most of the corn was already cut, there were pheasants everywhere! It was the perfect South Dakota pheasant hunt. We had some corn strips near the farmhouse that had hundreds of birds in them. With ten people pheasant hunting, our limit was thirty birds a day, and everybody shot well so it was a blast! Another highlight of the trip was the food. One night, my dad made Dutch Oven pheasant and crab dinner for us… That was some good stuff.
