Pheasant season is open across most of the northern tier of the United States, and Pheasants Forever, the country’s largest upland nonprofit habitat association, is hitting the road in their annual Rooster Road Trip to draw awareness to upland habitat destruction.
From today through November 1st, three intrepid hunters and their bird dogs will hunt their way across five states (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota) – walking only public land. This year’s event focuses on the importance of aggressively continuing to create these public-land projects for generations to come.
Along the way, the hunters will use Garmin to navigate and document their adventures. They’re using the Delta Upland, Astro GPS Dog Tracking System, Alpha GPS Tracking and Training System, and the Montana large-format outdoor navigator in the field, as well as a trusty nüvi personal navigator to guide them down the highways and byways.
Perhaps even more exciting is that they’ll be toting some of our new VIRB Elite HD action cameras on both hunters and dogs. Look for some exciting videos from them later this week. Until then, here’s a preview of what to expect:
If you care about preserving upland habitat and the birds found within, make sure you join Pheasants Forever today. You could even win some great prizes for that next hunting trip of your own!
