Annual North Dakota pheasant hunt helps town hit by wildfire

BUCYRUS, N.D. (AP) — An annual pheasant and grouse hunt that benefits the Bismarck Cancer Center also is helping residents of a small North Dakota town nearly wiped out by a wildfire.

The “Hunting Dakota with Roosevelt” event brings together North Dakota military personnel, cancer survivors and others. Last year, the hunt raised nearly $100,000 for the center.

The Dickinson Press reports (http://bit.ly/Ts30V9 ) that this year, the hunt’s banquet in Medora also included an auction with the proceeds going to victims of last week’s fire in Bucyrus (byoo-CY’-ruhs). The town with about two dozen residents lost four homes to the Wednesday fire.

Lemmon, S.D.-based Dakota Plains Federal Credit Union also has set up a relief fund for the Adams County town near the South Dakota border.
