Four Wild Players To Participate In Pheasant Hunt

by Staff Writer / Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild is known for their shooting accuracy on the ice. On Saturday four players will join a few lucky fans to show off their shooting accuracy when the target is a pheasant rather than a hockey net.

Eight lucky fans will participate in a half-day pheasant hunting trip with members of the Wild on Saturday, Dec. 6, as part of the “Hunt with the Wild” sweepstakes.

In conjunction with Pheasants Forever and Federal Premium, Gander Mountain collected thousands of entries for the sweepstakes on their official Facebook page during the October 23-November 22 entry period. Four randomly-selected winners, and their guests, will receive a guided pheasant hunt with a member of the Wild, along with a catered lunch and dinner, an autograph signing session and gifts from Gander Mountain. Hunters will also be outfitted with field wear from Browning, boots from Irish Setter and shotguns from Benelli.

Wild players and personnel participating include defenseman Keith Ballard, forward Kyle Brodziak, forward Ryan Carter and forward Justin Fontaine.

The event begins with a noon lunch, a safety briefing and a friendly sporting clays competition. The parties will head out hunting at approximately 1:30 p.m. Festivities will conclude with a dinner at 5 p.m.
