Painting by John House of Evansville wins 2004 Minnesota Pheasant Stamp contes

2004 Pheasant stamp winning painting A painting by John House of Evansville, was chosen as the winning design from among 23 entries in the pheasant habitat stamp contest sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Twelve entries advanced to the second stage of judging, from which six finalists were selected during judging Sept. 25 at the DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul. The other finalists were Scot Storm of Sartell, second place; John Freiberg of New Brighton, third place; Michael Sieve of Houston, fourth place; Dean Kegler of Hutchinson, fifth place; and William J. Kane Jr. of Arden Hills, sixth place.

Storm won first place in this year's Minnesota Waterfowl Stamp Contest.

The five-member panel of judges this year included Ron Nelson, layout and design manager for Outdoor News; Julie Olson, DNR Conservation Officer, Milaca; Joe Gonsior, Anoka Chapter of Pheasants Forever; Dave Soehren, DNR area wildlife manager, Appleton; and Sue Hughes of Wild Wings of Oneka, Hugo.

The $5 Pheasant Stamp is required of all Minnesota pheasant hunters ages 18 through 64. Stamp sales generate between $400,000 and $600,000 per year 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 2004 pheasant stamp will be available for sale in March 2004.
