    Anybody going to Pheasant Fest in St. Paul, Minnesota? Any recommendations on a motel to stay in near The Mall of America (wife is going with me)? How are the roads up through Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota snow wise? Coming up from Tennessee.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Road conditions at this time of year vary

    Roads are all interstate

    The event I thought was a great event last year in Des Moines- most people felt that way

    regards from Iowa

    It is put on by Pheasants Forever conservation organization. All kinds of hunting /shooting displays, artists, displays by some of the major gun companies, all breeds of sporting dogs, landowner and other seminars, equipment displays, hunting outfitters, etc. I think they have 800 people/groups setting up this year in St. Paul. About 25,000 people showed up last year.

    Thanks everyone for the replies.

    Ithaca$$$Grade: Thanks for the invite. I will have to pass aa I will be at Pheasant Fest on Friday evening and Saturday morning as we plan on heading south Saturday afternoon in order to get back to Tennessee as my wife has to be back at work Tuesday morning. I have to make a side trip on the way back to pick up two guns I will leave at a gunsmith on the way up for some minor work.
