Exchange With Reporters at the Winston Ranch in Sabinal, Texas

November 14, 1981

Q. I know who you are. [Laughter]

The President. You realize that after seeing this [referring to his camouflage outfit], we don't think that there may be very many turkeys left around. [Laughter]

Q. Mr. President, how does it feel to be out of Washington for a few days?

The President. Just fine. This is nice.

Q. Are you going to really shoot at a turkey?

The President. I hate to make that pledge. It's been a long time since I've -- I've never gone turkey shooting. So, I'm looking forward to this.

Q. Have you got a license, Mr. President?

The President. You bet. Yes, I have.

Q. Is Mr. Allen going to stay on the job while he's under investigation?

The President. I can't comment on that while it's still under review.

Note: The exchange began at 12:20 p.m. outside the ranchhouse, where the President spent the weekend as a guest of the family of Assistant to the President and Mrs. James A. Baker III.
