3 generations converge in SD field during opener

Three generations have converged in a northern South Dakota field for this year's pheasant opener.

Bob, John and Ben, all sharing the Donner last name, traveled 180 miles from Clara City, Minnesota, to Chelsea to take part on South Dakota's famous event.

John Donner said his father has always been a tremendous shot. Bob Donner, who turns 90 next month, shot four shells on Saturday and limited out with three roosters.

Bob Donner has been hunting at the Steve and Mary Swanhorst farm in Faulk County for about 15 years. John Donner has made the trip about five years.

Saturday was the first day of the season that runs through Jan. 4. Officials say they expect the opener to draw the usual crowd of thousands.
