Mead to participate in national quail hunting

Gov. Matt Mead is all set to travel to Enid in Oklahoma, to take part in the forty seventh Grand National Quail Hunt. This trip is not an official one; therefore, Matt Mead would go there at his own expenses, stated Renny MacKay, the communications director.

Even though he was invited to take part in the past, this would be a very first time when Matt Mead would attend the event. The website of the Grand National Quail Hunt said that entry is by invitation only. It said that the event offers the tiptop for the country’s top wing shots as well as most avid quail hunters.

The website told that there is nothing else like this, no other place where a participant can join with a select fraternity of sportsmen as well as celebs dedicated to the enhancement of long standing game bird hunting traditions of United States.

The quail hunt idea issued from a discussion in the year 1966 by 3 participants from Oklahoma in Wyoming’s 1 Shot Antelope Hunt.

Bellmon stated that Wyoming’s antelope are almost as plentiful as quail of Oklahoma. He thought why Oklahoma could not also have a celeb type quail hunt. Tonight, Matt would go to a reception in Enid. The participants, on Thursday, would engage in the informal trap as well as sporting clays open shooting at Grant National Gun Club. Later there is also a stag dinner and an auction.
