The Orlando Sentinel's Central Florida Political Pulse Blog has this post that begins with the intro "Florida Republican lawmakers are ready to support charities in the Panhandle by blowing some birds out of the air." According to the post, there are apparently three separate events planned.
First, U.S. Representative Jeff Miller is hosting something called the "2008 Congressional Quail Hunt." A $3000 platinum donation "Entitles you to 4 hunters Friday & 4 Hunters Saturday and 8 Dinner Tickets." Second, Florida Representative's Marti Coley and Ray Sansom are affiliating themselves with a quail hunt in Chipola. Finally, Representative Don Brown is holding "Don Brown's Duck Hunt," which features a "Duck Shoot at El Rancho Lodge" starting Feb. 22 before moving on to a "Continental Pheasant Shoot" and quail hunt at the Hard Labor Lodge. Brown’s website features a painting of ducks with bullet holes around them.
