With North Dakota’s pheasant opener just days away, hunters 21 and older who shoot one of 300 specially-banded pheasants again this fall will have a chance to a variety of prizes as part of Windsor Canadian’s “After the Hunt” promotion.
Sometime before Saturday’s North Dakota pheasant opener, Windsor will release the 300 pheasants across the state. Each pheasant has a band with a phone number legal-age hunters can call after bagging the bird to enter a sweepstakes drawing.
The drawing will be held after the season, and prizes include five gift certificates totaling $1,500 redeemable at Scheels All Sports, along with more than $9,200 in Windsor Canadian prizes such as hunting jackets, shooting gloves, protective eyewear, gun cases, T-shirts and baseball caps.
Windsor Canadian also will donate $1,500 to the North Dakota Wildlife Federation to support their goal of providing increased opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Hunters who shoot one of the specially banded birds during the regular North Dakota pheasant season must report their band before Jan. 20. During last year’s pheasant season, hunters from 11 states turned in bands from all across North Dakota.
For official “After the Hunt” rules, send a self- addressed stamped legal-size envelope no later than Jan. 5 to Windsor Canadian “After the Hunt,” at RNDC, 1406 N. 47th St., Fargo, ND 58102.
