Hunting With the Governor

Hunting With the Governor

Brownback plans 'Ringneck Classic' to promote Kansas as premiere pheasant hunting destination.

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback announced today he will help kick-off the pheasant hunting season next fall with the first annual "Kansas Governor's Ringneck Classic" near Oakley.  The Classic will take place November 18-20.

The Governor said he is establishing The Classic to better market Kansas as the premiere destination for pheasant hunting in the Midwest and to showcase the Kansas wildlife industry to those inside and outside the state.

The economic impact of hunting in Kansas is already substantial - bringing in $271 million annually and accounting for nearly 6,000 jobs.  But when compared to a state like South Dakota which attracts more than $220 million in pheasant hunting alone, the potential growth in this agritourism industry in Kansas is tremendous.

The inaugural hunt will invite community and business leaders from across the country for a weekend of hunting as well as networking with local business leaders on the expansion of the industry.
