(KCEN) --- It's hunting season, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz isn't sitting this one out.

The Texas republican spent this morning pheasant hunting in Iowa.

Cruz was invited by Iowa Congressman Steve King to the Colonel Bud Day Pheasant Hunt.

He told the Des Moines Register he goes hunting several times a year.

Cruz, who has gained national attention in his fight against Obamacare has been making the rounds in the key election state.

When asked if he plans to run for President in 20-16, cruz would only say his focus is "Entirely on the U.S. Senate."
