Governor Dayton participates in Pheasant Opener 15 Oct 12

Hunters reported strong pheasant numbers in the Marshall area during the second annual Governor’s Pheasant Hunt over the weekend. The Marshall area, known for its pheasant habitat and hunter and dog-friendly lodging, hosted Gov. Dayton and hundreds of guests. Fifty-seven hunters harvested nearly 100 roosters during the morning hunt. Gov. Dayton’s hunting party did not take any pheasants. Next year’s third annual Governor’s Pheasant Opener will be hosted by the City of Madelia, in Watonwan County.
