lolJust happened to have the wire with you?:mrgreen:Something else to put in my pack:!:
Here ya go...to give you an idea of what food sources to look for. Picture of crop contents from this trips birds...Ptarmigan food, like geum, Alpine Avens and Cinquefoil, was abundant where we hunted but the bird's crops were full of seeds and what looked like unripe currants.
We had currants up to 11,800 ft elevation.Great report! How many cred points do you guys get for that hunt?
Its funny you mentioned currants. I was hiking up in the Wasatch yesterday and was on a rockpile at 10275 ft. Here, I found what appeared to be currrants with small appealing fruits. I wasn't 100% sure so I didn't partake, but I'm fairly sure that was what they were. I'd never seen them before on this part of the Wasatch.
Utah Snapping Turtle over 15 lbs = 1 cred pointWe had currants up to 11,800 ft elevation.
Only a few mushrooms; nothing I would eat though.
