Dozens of hunters have signed up to join Gov. Sam Brownback in Oakley this week for a four-day event spotlighting pheasant hunting in northwestern Kansas.

The 2nd annual Governor's Ringneck Classic will benefit four nonprofit organizations. They include the Logan County Health Care Foundation and the Buffalo Bill Cultural Center, which will serve as headquarters for the gathering.

The invitational event will feature trap and sporting clay shootings on Thursday and Friday. A seven-hour hunt takes place on Saturday, with an extra hunt on Sunday.

Brownback's office says four soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division, 2nd Brigade at Fort Riley will be special guests of the governor.

I'll bet they have better luck than my group did this past weekend., but then, their birds will be kicked out of the pens the day before they hunt. My group of 9 hunters got a 2 1/2 day total of 21 birds. Last year we got 54. It got up to 81 Saturday with a southwest wind of 28, gusting to 51 mph. Sunday morning, 14 degrees with a stiff wind from the northwest. The things we do for fun...

That's a cloudless sky: it's all dust.

I have a cousin who runs a pheasant hunting operation. One of his guests in the past was Scalia. When I asked him if Cheney had ever been there I got a very quick "no".. "He is not invited, he doesn't follow the rules"

Is this in reality also an opportunity to raise campaign money for Brownback?

We should know these things.

I hunt with about a dozen hunters, max and I know them very well. Ya gotta be careful because there's always a Dick out there, wanting into your hunt. I'd bet there's a bunch of them on this circus.
