SCOTT RALL – POWDERHOOK LOCAL LEGEND

Scott Rall is an avid hunting enthusiast. He loves to run his black labs pheasant hunting while inviting youth, woman, wounded warriors to hunt right along with him. Scott enjoys helping with Minnesota’s Governors’ hunt, and teaching youth gun safety. But that’s just scratching the surface of his contribution to the future of hunting.

Along with getting a local high school trap team established, Scott and his partners have played a huge role in the local Pheasants Forever chapter which was noted as one of the top chapters in the US. His most notable contribution to land management was the purchase of an $852,000 147-acre parcel of land that they have had their eye on for 20 years. When the land went up for sale, Scott only had three and a half weeks to put together enough partners to reach the $852,000 price tag. This land will be held as a Wildlife Management Area available to the public to hunt for years to come.

I’ve been a Cubs fan since I was a little boy watching Ryno Sandberg on WGN in South Dakota.  They were always my second favorite team behind the Twins until my best buddy moved out to Chicago for college and we caught our first game at Wrigley.

I know what you’re thinking… sweet story dude, but why the heck does this matter in a story about hunting? Continue reading 5 Things Hunters Can Learn from the World Series
