Ptarmigan hunt on skis in the winter is an exciting hunt even for the experienced hunter. Skiing through the magic sceneries of Lapland's wilderness in search for the ptarmigan is an adventure in itself. The ptarmigan, white against the snow is hard to find before it flies away.The hunter must be alert and fast to shoot one.
