Cabela’s banded and released 100 banded birds on both public and private land within 50 miles of the Mitchell store prior to opening weekend. Twenty-seven of the 100 bands were brought in within the two-day contest timeframe.

All non-resident and resident hunters, age 18 years and older, were able to participate. There was no registration required or purchase necessary to win.

The grand prize was a Coleman 500 ATV valued at $6,599.99 and was awarded to Philip Bush, of Laurel, Miss. The $2,500 shopping spree winner was Kevin Roth, of Mitchell. All 25 of the other contestants went home with a Beretta shot gun or a $100 Cabela’s Gift Card.

All remaining bands turned in throughout the pheasant hunting season will be awarded a $25 gift card.
