Me and my father were driving south on the Dalton Highway (the highway on the show, Ice Road Truckers) and I noticed what looked like a motionless chicken head protruding out of the tundra. I walked up on this strange bird and encountered several more that flew about 100 yards away, I pursued them. Luckily, after I approached them again, they relied on camouflage and hid from me, rather than taking off. I actually had one that was within 3 feet from me. It was on the other side of a small bush...as I would walk one way around the bush, it would walk around the other way lol. Very unique bird, both in behavior and appearance.
