10 Years and Counting: Pheasants Forever Habitat Efforts Are "Built Ford Tough"

Celebrating a milestone 10th anniversary in support of upland habitat conservation, the Northland Ford Dealer group – Ford dealers in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin – provided a 2019 Ford F-150 Supercrew XLT pickup to be raffled off by Pheasants Forever. Tickets for the truck were provided to local chapters in portions of each state, with all proceeds benefitting habitat conservation efforts in their local communities.

Pheasants Forever supporter Aaron Bengtson was drawn as the lucky winner for 2019 after purchasing his ticket from the Battle Lake High School Trap Team. “I was shocked when I received the phone call from Pheasants Forever,” reported Bengtson. “It’s not every day that someone calls your cell phone to let you know that you’ve won a new truck. I was happy to support the trap team and overall conservation efforts in the Midwest. My fiancĂ© and I look forward to using the truck this winter for our outdoor adventures.” Bengtson plans to use the truck in his return to central North Dakota where he does most of his upland hunting.
The Northland Ford Truck Raffle has raised thousands of dollars for local habitat efforts in the program’s 6-state region. Thank you to Ford Truck dealers throughout the Midwest for your devotion to the conservation of wild things and wild places! Tickets are now available for the 2020 Northland Ford Truck Raffle through chapters in the upper Midwest.
