Cheney is going hunting again today
Residents of western Pennsylvania are being warned to wear International Orange today, and high school students with a penchant for camouflage should reconsider, local officials are suggesting.
Vice President Dick Cheney had previously wounded attorney Harry Whittington with shotgun pellets during a quail hunting trip in Texas last year.
LIGONIER, Pa. - Vice President Dick Cheney was scheduled to be in western Pennsylvania Monday for a hunting trip.
Cheney was to fly into Arnold Palmer Regional Airport after his morning briefing in Washington, his spokeswoman, Lee Ann McBride, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Cheney will hunt at the private Rolling Rock Club in Ligonier Township, about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh, where he has hunted several times in recent years for pheasants and ducks.
Cheney will not make any public appearances, but will hunt with some companions that McBride declined to identify.
Last year, Cheney wounded attorney Harry Whittington with shotgun pellets during a quail hunting trip in Texas. Whittington recovered.
