posted on November 2, 2016

Rio Ammunition is launching the Give Ducks the Blues Sweepstakes as its way of celebrating waterfowl seasons nationwide.

The promotion began on Oct. 17 and will continue through Jan. 31, 2017. During that window, Rio Ammo is giving waterfowl hunters the chance to take home five cases of its Royal BlueSteel shotshells.

To enter the sweepstakes, click here and submit the appropriate information before Jan. 31, 2017. A purchase does not improve the odds of winning the Grand Prize. Participants are limited to one sweepstakes entry during the sweepstakes period.

"Many of our customers look forward to the fall to share their experience of eager dogs, sea smoke, and crisp mornings with hunting comrades and family. With waterfowl season beginning across the country we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than offering the chance to win a season's worth of shells," said Adam Reese, Marketing Manager for Rio.

The winner will be selected around Feb. 3, 2017, and will receive in total 1,250 rounds of ammunition. The winner will get to choose between five different 12 gauge loads, ranging from 2¾-inch shells with 1 1/8 oz. shot all the way up to 3½-inch with 1 9/16 oz. magnum loads.
