“The Captain” Billy Hildebrand and I are taking Saturday morning FAN Outdoors radio show on the road. We’ll be in Marshall, Minnesota at 6AM this Saturday to broadcast live from the Minnesota Pheasant Summit.
Created by Governor Mark Dayton, the summit will include hunters, farmers, policymakers, conservationists, and key members of the Governor’s Cabinet. The focus will be on strategies to increase the state’s pheasant population, improve pheasant habitat, and ensure future generations of Minnesota hunters have the opportunity to enjoy one of the state’s most popular and iconic game birds.
Our broadcast will be live from 6AM to 8AM on 100.3FM in the Twin Cities and on www.KFAN.com worldwide. Tune in to hear a preview of the day’s discussion, along with some late season pheasant hunting tips and a little ice fishing conversation brought to you by our friends at Clam Outdoors.
