Branstad to Take Action on Dove Hunting

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

May 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad says he plans to take action allowing hunters to shoot doves with lead shot this fall.  Branstad spokesman Tim Albrecht says the governor will announce his plans during a news conference on Friday. Albrecht didn’t give specific details on what action the governor will take. The Iowa Natural Resources Commission last year passed a rule banning lead shot for dove hunting. The Legislature’s Administrative Rules Review Committee then agreed to postpone the rule. This year, the House passed a resolution to nullify the rule and allow lead shot. The measure died in the Senate. Opponents of dove hunting say the pellets contaminate the environment for other animals. Hunting groups says steel shot costs more and doesn’t work as well.

May 9th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

PHOENIX (AP) — Carlos Beltran homered in his first two at-bats, including a grand slam, for six RBIs, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat Arizona 6-1 on Tuesday night, handing the Diamondbacks their fourth loss in a row. Beltran, who had one of the Cardinals’ five homers in their 9-6 series-opening win on Monday, hit a two-run homer off Ian Kennedy in the first, then cleared the bases with a shot into the swimming pool area in right-center in the seconds, his 10th career grand slam. Jake Westbrook (4-2) blanked the Diamondbacks on four hits through seven innings. Kennedy (3-2) threw five scoreless innings after Beltran’s slam but the Diamondbacks lost for the sixth time in seven games. They have dropped nine of their past 11 at home.
