Pheasants Forever’s Rooster Road Trip 2016 Hits the Road


Garmin is proud to be partnered with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s Rooster Road Trip for the fifth year in a row. We are very dedicated to the continued conservation of our nation’s wildlife and are happy to hear that 2016 is on track to be one of the strongest years in nearly a generation for pheasant and quail populations.

Partnering with organizations such as Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever is imperative for the ongoing conservation of game bird habitat and lands, so we as hunters (and our bird dogs) can continue to enjoy our successes in the pursuit of upland birds. Rooster Road Trip is a great way to showcase to hunters how a vast range of Garmin products help hunters both in the field and in their everyday life.

Hunting parties will split up into two groups and cover public land in five states as Rooster Road Trip 2016 – Upland Nation, takes to the field October 24-28 and November 14-18. Bird dogs will hit the ground running on the prairies of South Dakota and Minnesota before advancing south to the grasslands of Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma. Hunters and their four-legged companions will be racking up the miles, tracked by their Garmin Alpha 100 and Astro 430 dog tracking systems, and Garmin fēnix 3 smartwatches. Follow along and keep track of how many miles the dogs and hunters cover, as those metrics will be posted here after each day’s hunt.

Some of the Garmin products Pheasants Forever will be using during the 2016 Rooster Road Trip are:
