Dogtown Common, located in Gloucester and Rockport, is being stocked with ring-tailed pheasant by the state Department of Wildlife.

The stocking will take place during pheasant hunting season, which runs Oct. 17 through Nov. 28; hunting is prohibited on Sundays.

Every year, MassWildlife stocks about 40,000 ring-necked pheasants statewide on public and private lands that are open to hunting. Dogtown is being stocked at least on a week, according to information on MassWildlife’s website.
