County, KS

Dodge City, Garden City, Hugoton, Jetmore and Liberal Kansas (Ford, Finney, Stevens, Hodgeman and Seward Counties) are pleased to announce the second annual pheasant hunting contest.

If you are lucky enough to bag one of the Banded Pheasants, bring your leg band to one of the approved locations to register your leg band and claim your prize!

Kansas consistently ranks as one of the top three when compared to other states' annual harvests of pheasants, and with 185,000 acres of walk in hunting land that is open to hunters in southwest Kansas, this area will give you a shot at Cash and FIVE GRAND PRIZES.
