No Pheasant For Dayton 17 Oct 11

Democratic Governor Mark Dayton and GOP House Speaker Kurt Zellers were in the same party for Saturday morning, a hunting party for Minnesota’s first Governor’s Pheasant Opener. Dayton, Zellers and several others spent a sunny Saturday morning hunting on the Lac qui Parle refuge after kicking off the Governor’s Pheasant Opener in Montevideo. The governor did not bag a bird, although Zellers harvested one. Dayton reportedly had to hold his shot because his press secretary was between him and two roosters the party flushed. By noon the parties had harvested 30 birds and reported flushing well over 150 others. The governor also went out for second try in the afternoon, but was not successful.
