Minnesota-( The city of Marshall has been selected as the host community for the 2017 Minnesota Governor’s Pheasant Hunting Opener.

“I thank the people of Marshall for graciously hosting the 2017 Governor’s Pheasant Hunting Opener,” said Gov. Mark Dayton. “This will be the second time the Marshall community has hosted this unique Minnesota tradition, and I look forward to celebrating the beginning of this great season there again next year.”

The announcement was made during the Community Banquet of this year’s pheasant opener event, hosted by the Montevideo area community.

Marshall was selected through an application process that considered hunting land in the area, event facilities and community support. The city lies near the 34,000-acre Lac qui Parle Wildlife Management Area, and actively promotes hunting and outdoor recreation. Marshall has a population of 13,680 and is located in southwestern Minnesota, 150 miles west of the Twin Cities.

The 2017 event in Marshall will mark the seventh annual Governor’s Pheasant Hunting Opener, initiated by Dayton in 2011. The event highlights the many hunting, recreational, travel and local opportunities that host communities have to offer visitors.

Explore Minnesota and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will assist local partners in planning the event.
