20100223_PFESTLOGODes Moines, Iowa –  Ever wish your bird dog could be on the cover of the Pheasants Forever Journal? For the first time ever, Pheasants Forever is opening up the coveted space, to be auctioned off at the National Pheasant Fest 2010 Banquet on Saturday, February 27th in Des Moines. National Pheasant Fest is February 26-28 at the Iowa Events Center.

Tickets still remain for the National Pheasant Fest Banquet, which will be the largest event in Pheasants Forever’s 28-year history, but they are going fast! An unprecedented live auction features the opportunity to purchase the rights to have your hunting buddy professionally photographed for the cover of one issue of the Pheasants Forever Journal, the organization’s signature publication that’s received by more than 100,000 Pheasants Forever members five times annually. Quail enthusiasts, take note, as the same goes for Pheasants Forever’s quail division, Quail Forever, and your bird dog on the cover of the Quail Forever Journal!

Staying on point with the bird dogs, Iowa’s own Top Gun Kennels has donated a German Shorthaired Pointer to the live auction for the banquet. To come from an upcoming litter (male or female), the $5,000-valued pup will be completely trained for the hunting enthusiast:

  • All commands of here, heal, sit, whoa, and kennel completed.
  • E-collar conditioned to commands and beeper collar completed.
  • Retrieve training to hand completed on land and water.
  • Hold point and steady to wing and shot.
  • Honor another pointing dog’s work.

Combined with a year’s supply of Native performance dog food and a 3-day, 4-night hunting trip for 4 to the Highland Hideaway near Riverside, Iowa, this dog/dog food/hunting package is unbeatable.

Other live-auction items include South Dakota guided pheasant hunts, an Argentine dove hunt, a Maine coast getaway, firearms, custom-built furniture by Iowa craftsmen/artists more.
