Gov. Walz goes pheasant hunting

Gov. Walz goes pheasant hunting

on opening weekend

ST PAUL, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~ October 11, 2020 (LSN)   Governor Tim Walz was out bright and early Sunday morning to enjoy the first weekend of pheasant hunting in Minnesota.

The governor hunted with John Benson of Mankato and State Senator Nick Frentz on the private property of Blaine Phillips in southern Minnesota.

The birds didn't cooperate, though: neither Governor Walz, Benson, nor Frentz bagged a bird. But, they did enjoy working with their trusty dogs and enjoying the beautiful weather and the camaraderie of the hunt. Governor Walz is pictured above with English Springer Spaniel Freja.

Governor Walz, Benson and Frentz all wore masks when not hunting, and maintained a 6-foot distance from each other during the hunt, in keeping with the Department of Natural Resources and Minnesota Department of Health outdoor recreation guidelines.

NOTE: The 2020 Governor's Pheasant Hunting Opener event, slated for Oct. 10 in Fairmont, was postponed until 2021 as a result of COVID-19.
