NATION : Bush’s Hunt Threatened by Rain
President-elect George Bush remained secluded today at an isolated ranch, but he and his friends were not optimistic about their quail-hunting prospects because of poor weather conditions, his spokesman said.
Steve Hart said Bush, armed with a shotgun, managed to kill some birds on the first day of his vacation at the Lazy F ranch on Monday. “He didn’t strike out,” Hart said.
But today Bush was not optimistic about bagging any quail because of the gusting winds and overcast skies that threatened rain, he said.
