Iowa plays its part in nationwide Pheasants Forever success

To pheasant hunters and wildlife enthusiasts, there is nothing more beautiful than native grassland habitat, alive with a myriad of different wildlife populations.

That was the vision of a small group of outdoor enthusiasts, who in 1982, created an organization named Pheasants Forever (PF). It gained the reputation as the “habitat organization” and for good reason. Iowa is certainly a strong state when it comes to PF. There are 100 local PF chapters, two Quail Forever chapters and two student PF chapters within Iowa’s 99 counties.
