SW Minnesota city of Worthington picked to host 2014 Governor's Pheasant Opener


WORTHINGTON, Minnesota — Worthington in southwestern Minnesota will host the 2014 Governor's Pheasant Opener.

The two-day event is scheduled for Oct. 10-11.

Scott Rall, a member of the event committee, says there are 12,900 acres of public land within 20 miles of Worthington. Rall calls Worthington "very hunter friendly."

This is the fourth annual Governor's Pheasant Opener, started by Gov. Mark Dayton in 2011. Previous host communities were Montevideo, Marshall and Madelia.

Dayton, who is a pheasant hunter, will lead the event. The public is invited to take part in some of the activities throughout the weekend.
