Lifelong pheasant hunter Gov. Mark Dayton plans to convene Minnesota’s first-ever Pheasant Summit later this year to discuss ways to grow the state’s pheasant population.
Two programs that help restore wetlands in Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota have received federal grants worth a total of $3.4 million. The groups are Ducks Unlimited Inc. and Pheasants Forever.
Pheasants Forever is dedicating a new wildlife area in west-central Minnesota.
