Still recovering, Gov. Dayton will attend deer opener but won’t hunt

Gov. Mark Dayton is in Fergus Falls Friday for the annual Governor’s Deer Hunting Opener but won’t hunt on Saturday.

The deer opener is held in a different city each year as a tourism booster.

Dayton underwent a medical procedure at the Mayo Clinic in late October to help speed the healing of an ailing hip and had been largely housebound until this week. 

He will attend a kick-off lunch at the Otter Tail County Fairgrounds in Fergus Falls Friday but returns to Minneapolis tonight to speak at a TakeAction Minnesota awards event.
