Even if the fish aren’t biting, the ducks aren’t flying and the pheasants aren’t flushing, Doug Smith says any day spent outdoors is a good day. A Minnesota native, he’s been covering the outdoors for the Star Tribune since 1995. He considers walleyes fried over a campfire to be gourmet cuisine.

A painting of a pheasant perched on a fence post by Timothy Turenne of Richfield was chosen as the winning design for the 2013 Minnesota pheasant habitat stamp.
 
Turenne finished third in the 2011 pheasant stamp competition.
 
His artwork was chosen from among 14 entries. Five entries advanced to the second stage of judging, from which the five-member panel of judges selected six finalists. Ed Durose of Roseville took second place and Mark Thone of Shakopee took third.

The $7.50 Pheasant Stamp is required of all Minnesota pheasant hunters ages 18 through 64. Stamp sales generate money for habitat enhancement efforts on both public and private lands in Minnesota’s pheasant range.

The DNR offers no prizes for the stamp contest winner, but the winning artist retains the right to reproduce the work, which is usually done as limited edition prints. The 2013 Pheasant Stamp will be available for sale in March 2013.
