The Himalayan Snowcock is one of the largest and most difficult game birds in North America to hunt. This bird is a member of the pheasant family and its native range includes the Himalayan and Pamir mountain ranges.  During the early nineteen sixties the Nevada Department of Wildlife worked with through the President of Pakistan to gain permission to trap and transport birds back to the United States.  The birds were taken to a game farm where they were bred into a much larger population and between the early nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies these birds were released into the wilds of Nevada.

These birds make an excellent mount and any hunter who harvests one should consider mounting such a challenging game bird.
Today there is a wild population of Himalayan Snowcock that can be hunted in the Ruby Mountain range of Nevada.  These birds thrive in the highest mountain peaks typically at altitudes over eleven thousand feet.  In addition to these birds living at very high altitudes, they also prefer to stick to rocker hillsides that expand into wider more open terrain.  The Himalayan Snowcock survives on a diet of grass, seeds, and berries, and will typically feed moving uphill slowly.
