nope, with the exception of peafowl generally most game birds do not have any kind of homing instinct. Every now and then someone will have luck with silver or red golden pheasants but it's not reliable. Prairie chickens, like many galliforms are as dumb and jumpy as they are pretty and cool to watch and don't stick around if they get loose.
