WATCH: Rooster Road Trip 2020: Day Five Recap – Central Minnesota

c369305b-8991-48bf-a611-bd9f90ee9c22 Rooster Road Trip is back! The year 2020 has brought change throughout our entire country, and the Rooster Road Trip is not immune to these adjustments. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we’re staying closer to home this week and focusing on the state where we live – and where the organization was founded in 1982: Minnesota.

Although we won’t be traveling to multiple states, the mission of our 11th iteration of Rooster Road Trip remains the same. Our goal is to show that with a little ambition and a lot of boot leather, public land birds can be had by you and anyone who’s willing to purchase a license and explore the fantastic upland landscapes available to all of us.

The final day of the 2020 Rooster Road Trip was the antithesis to the overall trip itself. Instead of starting strong in an area with minimal remaining crops and dry conditions, at the beginning of the day we found ourselves hunting in the snow surrounded by standing corn with minimal birds to show for our effort. Luckily, the weather and our luck eventually shifted and “chaos exploded in the form of roosters and hens.”
