Freeport resident wins 2006 Minnesota Pheasant Stamp contest (2005-10-04)

A painting by Scot Storm was chosen as the winning design from among 22 entries in the 2006 Pheasant Habitat Stamp contest sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Nine entries advanced to the second stage of judging, from which three finalists were selected during judging Sept. 29 at the DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul. Nick Reitzel of Karlstad took second place and Ed DuRose of Roseville took third. Storm won the 2004 Migratory Waterfowl Stamp contest in 2004 and the Pheasant Stamp contest in 2000.

The five-member panel of judges this year included John Schroers of Toll Bridge Art Gallery, Shakopee; John Miller, firearms safety instructor from Apple Valley; Aaron Kuehl of Pheasants Forever; Tim Brastrup, DNR Fisheries, Brainerd; and Mark Johanson, DNR Enforcement, Little Falls.

The $7.50 Pheasant Stamp is required of all Minnesota pheasant hunters ages 18 through 64. Stamp sales generate money for habitat enhancement efforts on both public and private lands in the pheasant range of Minnesota.

The DNR offers no prizes for the stamp contest winner, but the winning artist retains the right to reproduce the work, which is usually done as limited edition prints. The 2006 Pheasant Stamp will be available for sale in March.
