Podcast Ep. 261: Women on the Wing Series Part 3: Working with Chapters to Accomplish Mission Delivery

Continuing Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s special Women on the Wing podcast series, host Ashley Chance is joined by co-host Britta Petersen for a conversation with North Dakota Senior Field Representative Renee Tomala. Renee talks to us about growing up in the outdoors, DIY dog training and how she works with Pheasants Forever Chapters to carry out our organization’s mission.

SPOILER ALERT: There are now 13 Women on the Wing Chapters across the country with more on the way!

Episode Highlights:
  • Being in the path of totality – Britta's eclipse experience.
  • The crew talks about getting comfortable eating unusual animal parts. 
  • Renee talks about what a privilege it is to work with chapters to carry out our mission and all the ways she goes about that, leaving us to wonder what doesn't a regional representative do?
  • Renee gives us a brief history of Women on the Wing and Women on the Wing Chapters, which originated with an all-women staff years ago in North Dakota.
  • Today there are  Women on the Wing Chapters in ND, TX, MN, MI, NC, WA, GA, WI, AZ, SD and OH doing all kinds of neat things including hosting events like “Unstuck your truck.”
  • Renee chronicles the (mis)adventures of Quill, her German Wirehaired Pointer aka ‘Porcupine Lover.’
