ST. PAUL, Minn. -(Ammoland.com)- Pheasants Forever’s Rooster Road Trip 2017, an annual digital showcase of upland hunting on public land habitat and access projects, takes to the field October 9th – 13th.
This year launches a new theme, Bucket List Bird Hunts, showcasing world-class upland adventures that are available to any upland hunter.
From central Montana, the Rooster Road Trip will highlight an array of publicly-accessible lands, many of which Pheasants Forever has played a significant role in creating through land purchases, local projects or legislative action.
Rooster pheasants, sharp-tailed grouse and Hungarian partridge inhabit the vast prairies of central Montana, against a magnificent backdrop of island mountain ranges.
From Wildlife Management and Block Management Areas to Bureau of Land Management properties and Waterfowl Production Areas, all the hunting on this bucket list adventure will take place on land any uplander can enjoy.
“Public lands have never been more important, and Pheasants Forever is an integral part of the public lands and access movement,” says Anthony Hauck, Pheasants Forever’s director of public relations. “The organization is working harder than ever to permanently conserve public lands, restore and manage habitat on existing public tracts, and advocate for CRP and other habitat initiatives that can be enrolled in walk-in or other access programs. At the center of it all is upland habitat. With its multitude of public access, Montana is the ideal spot for a Bucket List Bird Hunt that’s available to any American upland hunter.”
