Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau to Host Annual Bounty Bird Pheasant Contest With Rooster Roundup During Hunting Season
Dodge City and Ford County offers outdoor enthusiasts a variety of hunting opportunities including pheasant, quail, deer, turkey, and more. With welcoming guides, accommodating lodging hosts, and acres of public land, Ford County is a hunter's haven.
The 2019-2020 pheasant hunting season in Ford County boasts an additional incentive to hunters as the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau once again hosts their two annual pheasant contests. “Bounty Bird” and “Rooster Roundup” contests will release 150 banded pheasants near the Ford County walk-in hunting areas adjacent to Dodge City.
100 gold numbered leg banded birds will be released for the “Bounty Bird” and 50 red numbered leg banded birds will be released for the “Rooster Roundup”. If you are lucky enough to bag one of the Ford County leg banded pheasants, hunters will need to return the leg band to the Dodge City Visitors Center to receive a gift and officially register the band for the appropriate contest. If you bag a “Rooster Roundup” bird banded for another participating county, those bands can also be returned to Dodge City Visitors Center for a gift and the band will be returned to the appropriate county for the “Rooster Roundup” contest drawing.
“Bounty Bird” gold numbered leg bands will each correlate with an associated community prize. “Rooster Roundup” red numbered leg bands will be entered into a grand prize drawing at the end of pheasant season. All winners will be revealed after the conclusion of pheasant hunting season (January 31, 2020). Winners of the prizes will be contacted by telephone and prizes may be picked up at the Dodge City Visitors Center or will be mailed to the winner.
As always, this is a great opportunity for hunters as there are more chances to win prizes when you hunt in Ford County.
The ‘“Bounty Bird” and “Rooster Roundup” pheasant contests runs the duration of pheasant season, November 9, 2019 to January 31, 2020.
