WATCH: The Spark - Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever’s Origin Story

5e9386d6-f4b4-4991-97dc-8850aaf7fc24 “...We tolerate winters such as these, when hens and roosters freeze to death, their faces mere clumps of ice after they turn windward to a final, desperate attempt to survive. Have you ever watched a pheasant freeze?”

On March 7th, 1982 those words by outdoor columnist Dennis Anderson were destined to be heard across Pheasant Country. And heard they were… 

This message sparked a fire inside of hunters and conservationists who didn’t think the disappearance of grasslands and wetlands was inevitable, and people who didn’t believe shrinking bird populations and diminishing hunting opportunities was unavoidable. 

That energy and passion stoked the flame that forged Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever into existence – and today the same motivation for healthy upland habitat, clean water, and abundant wildlife is carried-on by you… 

With the tremendous sacrifices being made and uncertainty being felt throughout the world due to COVID-19, it’s clear that we as individuals, families, and organizations must all rally together and do our part. 

For Pheasants Forever, this means we’re going to continue fighting for the healthy upland landscapes and experiences that unite us even when we can’t be together.

Spring is a time of growth, renewal, and opportunity… Mother nature isn't coming to a standstill and this nesting season our work can't either.
