Not too long ago I got a phone call from my friends at Federal Premium asking me if I’d like to go pheasant hunting with them, the kind folks from Benelli and Pheasants Forever. Yeah, I didn’t have to think about it very long and said yes.
Now, I’ll tell you more about the hunt later when I talk about the great shotshell ammunition Federal brought along. Their new Prairie Storm FS Steel is an amazing load. And I’m sure you’ll appreciate the wonderful shotguns Benelli supplied for the hunt. Legacy 28′s, Montrofello 20-gauges and Super Vinci 12-gauges, Oh my!
What I want to talk about right now is Pheasants Forever. Have you ever hunted Pheasants? I remember as a kid growing up in Michigan. We had pretty strong numbers of pheasants running around the farm. Those days are long gone, however. When I lived in Nebraska, we had good numbers of birds out there and more each year. Most of that is thanks to Pheasants Forever. Through the work of PF, I might one day see birds on my farm again!
Joining a conservation group like PF is the right thing to do if you enjoy the outdoors. Take a look at the links on this site over on the right for groups to join. There are more than we list and they all do great work.
I can say from personal experience with my great friends at PF and other groups like my buddies at Delta Waterfowl. Conservation groups do SO much for our outdoor lifestyle. They deserve your support.
If you have any questions about a conservation group, please feel free to drop me a line. I will look into any question you have and get you the answers you need. I think you’ll find that supporting conservation is the smart thing to do for our future!
