Congressman Steve King’s annual Colonel Bud Day Pheasant Hunt will be held this weekend at the Hole N’ the Wall Lodge near Akron, Iowa.

Senator Charles Grassley will be King’s special guest for breakfast on Sunday morning at 7:30 am.

The Bud Day Pheasant Hunt has regularly attracted national leaders who attend for the opportunity to hunt as well as interact with King’s supporters.

Colonel Day, a Sioux City native, was the nation’s most decorated war hero at the time of his death in 2013.

A Medal of Honor recipient, he also received some 70 military decorations, including the Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross and multiple awards of the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Air Medal.
