The transcript of Dick Cheney's interview on Fox News is available on CNN. I'd like to hear from the local authorities in greater detail, especially on the point I take as excerpt, but David Gregory of NBC reports no contact after two days of effort:
Question: Was anybody drinking in this party?

Cheney: No. You don't hunt with people who drink. That's not a good idea. We had --

Question: So he wasn't, and you weren't?

Cheney: Correct. We'd taken a break at lunch -- go down under an old -- ancient oak tree there on the place, and have a barbecue. I had a beer at lunch. After lunch we take a break, go back to ranch headquarters. Then we took about an hour-long tour of ranch, with a ranch hand driving the vehicle, looking at game. We didn't go back into the field to hunt quail until about, oh, sometime after 3:00 p.m.

The five of us who were in that party were together all afternoon. Nobody was drinking, nobody was under the influence.
