The Huron Ringneck Festival & Bird Dog Challenge is an annual Pheasant Hunting competition that draws participants from across the United States. Each year, 30 teams (6 people per team) are selected through an application process. The object of the competition is to bag the most birds (within the state limit) with only four shells per hunter. The competition fee includes two banquets, field lunch, rules breakfast, live entertainment and first-class prizes.
The Bird Dog Challenge tests the skills of dogs and hunters. This competition allows two hunters and one dog to take the field in a timed, limited shell hunt. Points are awarded to each team based on retrieves, shots not taken, and every second remaining on the clock. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three teams.
