Event: 2017 Governor's Opener Events

The Metro Area chapter had an excellent time this past weekend at the 2017 Minnesota Governor's Pheasant Opener events.  Friday we were able to see the dedication of the James Meger Memoral WMA, the project our chapter raised over $4,500 for with our 2016 Clays for a Cause fundraiser shoot.  This land will honor Meger's legacy, provide habitat to the wildlife he celebrated and provide a public hunting area which will inspire generations of hunters to come!  Saturday we had the oportunity to act as hunter hosts, taking hunters out for a great morning and a chance to get on some birds.  Two of our members even had the opportunity to hunter-host at the ladies-only hunt and hunted with the lieutenant governor, Tina Smith!  

Chapter member participants also made the news at the event!

  • KEYC News Mankato spoke with member Steve Gnoza, while he was hunter hosting--check it out here.
