MARSHALL, Minn. (AP) - Governor Mark Dayton heads to Marshall today for the second annual Governor's Pheasant Hunting Opener.
Dayton started the Governor's Pheasant Opener last year in Montevideo. This year, he'll be joined in Marshall by Congressman Collin Peterson, DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr, Public Safety Commissioner Mona Dohman and others.
Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cal Brink says Dayton's visit isn't about politics.
Brink tells KMHL-AM that it's more about what hunting does for Minnesota, and "how good the hunting is in southwest Minnesota."
Dayton's visit will include a banquet at the Conference Center at Southwest Minnesota State University, and hunting Saturday on public land just outside of Marshall.
